Monkey at the camera shop "smudged" my lens...

About a month ago I bought a D800E, only to have it fall out of my bag when I picked it up without realizing it was zipped..It fell about 2-3 feet onto a mud/gravel mixture..I at first thought it was ok, but photos I have taken over the past couple of weeks all show extreme softness in the upper right corner..

Called the camera shop where I bought it from, and they said they would be happy to "do some tests" on it to see if they can find anything wrong..

Took it in the other day, and their "Nikon Expert" did the tests, one of which involved "smuding" the back of the lens with his monkey thumb and than taking pictures. 

What the heck?  Why would someone do that??
