Unhappy Dealer did not change filter @ 3000

I brought my 04wrx in for my second oil/filter change at 6000miles.
i had planned on having the first two done at the dealer then start doing them myself, I've already bought a case of oem filters & Mobil synth to start doing them at 9000 and beyond.
So, I asked if I could watch the change this time to get familiar with the procedure, and when the mechanic removed the lower plastic thing even I could tell that it was the original filter still on (blue filter with paint mark on it).
Both the mechanic and service guy said they would be upset too if it were their car, and to call in Monday when the manager will be there.
My questions:
1)What should I say/ask for from the manager?
2)Should I delay my planned mods, (uppipe, turboback exhaust and I/C hoses), planned on doing them at end of month?
3)My biggest concern is the engine, i've read here people changing their oil very early, should i be worried about damage, however minute, i'm planning on keeping this car indefinitely?
4)Last Q, how do I change my profile name b/c i ain't no Specialist?

I hope I'm not overreacting, but when you pay for something to be done...
Thanks for reading and for any help everyone, these forums rule! and so does my car.
