93 TA Key stuck in ignition

I need help ASAP, I drove to work today and shut my car off and the key won't rotate completely to off. So I can't remove the key. I started the car up cycled the shifter and drove around the parking lot. Parked again and turned the car off and still can't rotate the key fully to off so I can remove it. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks

Jiggle that son of a bitch... I know that doesn't sound like great advice, but mine does this occasionally. I have to jiggle the key and lock sometimes fairly violently and try to turn the key towards the position where you can remove it (the mark on your console). Oh and make sure it's in park...

Isn't there a button that needs to be pushed in with your thumb to turn the key off?
There is on mine.

I think the button near the key is only for the cars that have the manual transmission. Mine is automatic so I don't have that button.
