does anything get harmed by tightening your lugnuts beyond the recommended torque setting?

My setting is suppose to be 83 torque(ft lbs?). but my mechanic/friend tightened my lugnuts ridiculously tight. I even stood on the wrench trying to loosen them so i could then retighten them with my torque wrench. i gave up. i plan on leaving them, if thats safe and ok, until i have to rotate the tires.

You can also warp your rotors. Take it back to the mechanic and tell him to tighten it by hand.
