I've had this happen as well on one of my cars. Jiffy Lube install no less. The thing was so tight that after I destroyed the filter case trying to get it off I had to resort to using a cold chisel on the base plate to CUT it of.

Too, I've had the opposite happen. Again, another Jiffy Lube install, the filter worked loose on a roadtrip to PA. Ended up loosing close to 2 qts. of oil. Sorry WVa water supply.
