Stupid question on oil change

I know this sounds stupid but i'm doing oil change on my own for the first time and I can't open up the oil filter cap by hand...
I know I know....
Anyone had this problem and how did you guys solve it other than asking someone else to open it up?

Go to any auto shop (strauss, pepboys etc.) and buy an oil cap wrench. That would sovle your problem.

Dude I can bench 405lbs for 5 reps and I could not open that fucker by hand. You need a oil cap wrench. The human body has its limitations.

After taking a steroids test doctors informed Chuck Norris that he had tested positive. He laughed upon receiving this information, and said "of course my urine tested positive, what do you think they make steroids from?"

Haha thanks for replies guys!
I end up buying the wrench and noticed how impossible it was to do that by hands!
