confused 2005 Ford Escape Lunging from side to side?

I recently had an alingment, rear tire slow leak fix, and oil change. Ever since when I turn a corner and give it gas to speed up and then take my foot off the gas or let up, my car lunges (not swerves..lunges) to the side. Then if I try to merge onto a highway speeding up and moving into the lanes it lunges again and is very scary because then I'll try to correct it and it lunges the other way (I'm a girl and I know it's not my driving this time) I brought it back to the place that did the alingment etc. they said everything checked out, suspension, bearings, alingment and just gave me the car back and said they dont know what it is (even though he drove it and saw what it's doing) and I"ll just have to deal with it. Any ideas what it could be?

I'd say to take it to another alignment shop and have them check it.
