Gear change difficulty

My daughter’s car recently was repaired to fix the high pressure power steering line. When she picked up the car, she had difficulty shifting out of park. I suspect the mechanic might have bent a rod. What do you think?

If it worked normally when you got it home, it’s OK. Might be a cable. If the car was against a parking block, it can cause that.
