stuck ignition key

Ok, I appologize for my constant whineing in here but now my ignition key is stuck in the ignition! Any idea how to EASILY get it out and how to stop it from happening again? Anybody else having this problem??

First thing I'd think is your tumblers are shot. But you have an '05, right? So I wouldn't expect them to be bad already.
Have you tried any spray graphite lube in the lock? Maybe that'll loosen things up enough to get the key out.

Yep, did that and at least I can struggle to get it in and out (still possible at my age). Today though I notice that the key is a little bit bent, probably from being in my pocket attatched to a metal holder. I'm going to try and straighten it out and later get a key made to see if that might be the intial problem
