thats cool, you'll never lose it now......
But for real you can't grab it with a pair of needle nose pliers?

I always forget to pull out
Oh we've all been there but I'd be a bit more worried if it got stuck in! Maybe some lube is the way to go ;)

The the op, my key got stuck in the park position before and after about ahlf hour of wiggling it just suddenly went. Not quite the same as the key not coming out but just keep moving it about and trying until the pins properly align I guess

Turn and pull, keep doing and don't let off pressure, it will come out

Wd40, just did mine two days ago.

Put a rag under the ignition because it will leak out eventually. Squirt a good amout in on both sides of the key and let it sit for a couple minutes. Then when I got the key out I put a little more in.
