The quick change oil places strip drain plugs quite often- was it one of those? of course that can happen with any bozo "mechanic"- good luck trying to get one of those fast lube places to repair their mistakes- they specialize in mistakes- you can try- you are looking at a new oil pan- if you find a good garage and a good mechanic, they may be able to rethread the drain hole and put a new bolt in- then stick with the good mechanics and let them change your oil
