i'd put money on it that you got your alignment done and one of a few things happened;
-they only did a front end alignment
-they didn't do an alignment at all
-their alignment machine needs to be calibrated
-or, it just went out of alignment. that happens.
go get it lined up by another shop and make sure that they give you the angle readings when their done.

If you can, stand behind the car, and have someone else dirve the car away slowly. look at how the tires track, and the rear of the car.
Iinside or outside wear, is the angle the tire contacts the road with. Feathering is caused by the tire being poinetd in from the 3-9 oclock refernce point.
Usually rear alignment is pretty solid, since they usually are fairly fixed in the angles they move. But as stated before, sometimes algnements just go out. Alsoe shocks wear, bushings fail.
Does the car track right from the drivers seat. Do you need to hold the steering whell slightly off center to make the car go straight. If the rear track is out, you wont feel a pull like the front, but you will have to correct for it.
And sometimes stuff happens
