Really Sad day for the mustang

Driving and all of a sudden my brakes go out , and can't move my steering wheel.. Powersteering pump blew..
So whatever I get it home, and pull it off and slap a new one on , no problem..

Start it up, and get the air out.. Bam.. My rack and pinion is gussing out fluid.. Burned up my seals.. Fml right?
So start taking apart the tie rods, and pull the rack off, go get a new one and take it to get a alignment , ridiculous wait time.. Get it and whatever I'm in a rush to get a haircut Lol. And I center the wheel and see what the job they did and it pulls left when the wheel is straight.. And the wheel is off center.. Dude I do alignments all the time at work.. It's so damn easy.. The guy half assed it , smh .. Taking it back Monday and saving some words for the Tech.

Most places guarantee their work, go back and tell them you're not satisfied.

How does the old sayin go? Something like: "If it has tits or tires, you're going to have trouble with it."

That's always blown my mind. Kids in Hondas with no PS or AC because they think it makes their car fast, running their mouth when we have to change a ps pump or a window motor or something. Constantly getting slapped around by muscle cars would make anyone bitter, I guess..
