What are you guys doing when someone does an oil change on a Camry/Corolla/Vibe etc. without using the filter cup removal tool and breaks/rounds off the plastic housing? Just tapping away at it with a punch and hammer until it spins loose? We had one come in yesterday with this problem.

The biggest blue pliers channellock makes are the tool of choice for that job.
