Jeep random starting issues

So i go to work, work the day, get in my jeep and leave. park it, get out, get back in 2 mins later, go to start it and turn the key, and absolutely nothing happens, it doesnt attempt to fire up or even make any sort of noise, all that happens is the battery goes on as if i didnt turn the key all the way to start. i try this like 10 times before i give up and wait 5 mins, 5 mins later, i turn the key and it fires up as if nothing happened. this happened to me once like a month ago, and a few months before that, seems very very rare but random, anyone ever had something like this happen? i just wanna be able to solve a problem before it really starts if i have to

</long post>

Though I wheel through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou lockers are with me;
Thy lift and thy tires, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a spotter before me in the presence of mine obstacles;
