Default '95 Civic: Can't remove ignition key from steering column

I'm having difficulty removing the ignition key from the steering column
of my '95 Civic. I turn off the engine but the key won't come out. I
have noticed that if I shift the automatic transmission lever out of
Park and back to Park again, sometimes that tricks it into letting me
take the key out. So I suspect it has something to do with that
interlock that prevents you from removing the key when the transmission
is engaged.

This behavior started after I had the transmission shift cable serviced.
Did my mechanic screw up something?

yes - the cable needs to be adjusted.
