Question Wiper stays on!

My problem is that the windshield wiper stays on after using it unless i switch off the ignition and turn it on again. My car is a 98 Astra. Once i tried switching the wiper on & off in order to stop it and it worked but now it just stays on. Can anyone tell me how to rectify this and save me a trip to the Service Centre (which i hate going).

It's getting to be a real hassle as whenever i want to clean the windshield and use the wiper i have to stop the car as the wiper stays on. Not to mention that it is embarrassing.

Switch contact error. Happened with my car in a different way. Get it checked at a local mechanic's or just any car accessory shop.
