Gears stuck

The other morning, I backed into my parking space at work.
When I returned later that day to go home, getting the truck in
gear was really hard to do. I thought I was going to break the
shifter. It's the only time it's done that.

What would cause that?

I have a 2003, 5.4, 4X4, XLT.

Thanks for any insights.

Mike

If you backed the tires hard against a stop,put the brakes on, and then put
it in park
the vehicle will rock slightly putting extreme pressure against the park
tang when you release the service brakes, making very hard if not impossible
to get out of park, This assuming an automatic tranny the one thing you
didn't give us, what tranny. Two things to do will avoid this, one don't
park hard against the stops wither backed in or pulled into a space, and
follow the owners manual for parking, which is foot on brake, tranny in
park, parking brake applied and then release the service brakes.
