Default Oil change from dealer - major overfill **UPDATE**

So I'm rather upset at the dealer and at myself. I had my oil changed at the dealer two weeks ago. I always check my oil after each oil change, but for whatever reason, I didn't do it this time.

500 miles later, I decide to finally check my oil dipstick and what the freak, it's way overfilled. After waiting for an hour on a warm engine, the level is above the kink.

I leave it overnight and check the oil first thing in the morning and it's still an inch over the F mark. It's over the notch and it's a cold engine!

I immediately called the dealer and they told me some BS of how the dipstick is very unreliable blah blah blah and how they use a digital "something" (i forget the exact device) to dispense the "exact" amount required. I am going to bring in the STi first thing in the morning.

Am I freaking out over nothing? I'm trying to figure out how much they overfilled it and why/how it happened.

What should I say/do at the dealership?
