A/c compressor verses alternator and water pump

(1999 Mercury Sable)
I took my car in for a burning smell and loud noise when starting the vehicle. (99 merc. sable). I was charged 800.00 for a serp belt,water pump, and alternator. Within a week the burning smell and loud noise is back along with a quote from the same mechanic for $1100.00 for the A/C compressor. How likely is it that I'm having a new issue? I feel like I was misdiagnosed the first round and now getting hosed. Please advise

You are correct, this sounds like a misdiagnosis. I mean a water pump, and alternator at the same time? Now the A/C pump. This is ridiculous.
