Losing your keys is the worst — so it makes sense to do whatever you can to ensure your keys get back to you safely, should they be misplaced. For some that may mean attaching a Bluetooth-enabled location tracker, but I'd rather not have yet another bulky plastic doohickey on my keychain next to my flash drive.

Hi Lifehacker! I recently applied for an internal job which unfortunately I didn't get. One of my friends, however, did get the job. This friend has no job skills, no experience, and no industry knowledge.

What do you do when your friend gets the job you wanted?
