Transmission linkage pop off

Yesterday I stopped and picked up the dogs from the boarders and when I came back out, restarted the engine it wouldnt go in gear. Stuck in neutral with no resistance in the shifter. I took apart the shifter and console and everything worked as intended. I looked on trailvoy and found out about the linkage connection on the side of the trans. I wasnt going to crawl under with only a scissor jack and the TB loaded with gear from a beach fishing weekedn so had to wait for a tow truck. 3 hrs later he showed up, pulled out a floor jack, lifted the TB crawled under and poped it back on. Before I got a good look he lowered it back. NO charge. Im going to get it back up today and look it. I found a few posts about changing the linkage cable but nothing to specific about the connection point, pics or repairs. It was random that I just drove 50 miles, stopped for minutes and it popped off. I didnt hit any major potholes, inclines or anything. The weirdest part about it is the the pet hotel employee said I was the 2nd car of the day that this happened to. The tow driver said the same thing. ????? Any experiences with this randomly popping off?
