Kinda scary

Just had oil, fuel filters and tire rotation done at dealer. Left dealer and headed out onto interstate. Upon entrance to my 2nd circle off ramp my steering wheel would barely turn. Got truck stopped to side. Fluids looked fine. Rotated wheel several times and it came out of it. Any thoughts?
It looks like they greased my u joints also.

Did the truck shut off or just the steering lock up?

Just steering. Came to stop on the side. Got out checked under hood, got back in, tried turning wheel back forth, bout 3-4 tugs it came right out of it. It was like power steering off and no turn to back on and normal. Its been cautious driving since
