Oil Leak This Morning

HI all,
I had a oil change about 2 weeks ago and didnt notice any thing wrong till this morning. I have a oil puddle under my rig that was not there yesterday- I park in the same spot at work everyday. My husband who works here also took a quick look and says maybe the idiots who changed the oil didnt put the oil filter on tight enough and he will try and check it out tonight when we get home. Do you all think this is possible- I sure wish this bad juju would leave me & my nitro I love it but seems like its always something new happening and it aint good.

Anyone else have this problem incase its not the filter???

I had a problem with an oil leak and I took it down to the dealership. They said they couldn't find the problem so took it home and lifted the front end. I used degreaser to clean the compartment then took it for a drive down the road. Low and behold it was coming from the oil filter. I hand tightened it and guess what? It stopped leaking.
