I did as well, until this year.
I will never deal with them directly ever again unless I have to.
And I'm a pretty patient person so that should tell you how far their customer service has sunk.
Target had a meal kit for chicken pesto pasta. It was all prepackaged items put together in a bag with a price slapped on. Turned out really well, with the cheese ravioli having lemon zest that paired well with the pesto sauce. Cyz and I devoured it all except for the massive amount of shredded chicken left over. Which went into our roomie's pasta salad nicely. Need to find more of that pasta.
We've had those before, they are surprisingly good.
I discovered that rare trifecta of two bridges out and a main highway closed while trying to get from New Glarus to Madison at the end of the work day.
Needless to say my route back to the shop got pretty interesting.
Fortunately because I grew up in the area and am quite familiar with all the back roads south of Madison I was never lost, just ended up way further west then I wanted.

For dinner and lunch, though not every night obviously but we tend towards meals with less emphasis on cooking in the summer. Tacos, sandwiches, salads and whatnot. It helps that the grocery store near us has boar's head.
We also vary what we use as bread for the sandwiches. We've been using naan a lot this year.
Beginning phase one of a project tomorrow, there are a lot of phases but the most important one is building a fire breathing dragon pebble mosaic. Which is probably a month away.
As far as food goes I've been going with peanut butter and jelly, natural Cheetos, grapes and a banana three a week and then a ham or chicken sandwich with thin sliced provolone and a bit of olive oil mayonnaise and lettuce to go with the Cheetos and fruit.

Oh, they're aware. Unless they're deliberating avoiding both the forums and their email, they can't *not* be aware.
They are aware they just don't care.
The current customer service team is uncommunicative and apathetic at best, you're better off not having to deal with them at all, but if you have to keep it as simple as possible because they don't care.
In fairness, Kurt is the one that unearthed the chamber I just stood around and took pictures while whatever was in there probably escaped.
But, it was on a property adjacent to a golf course so unless it forms some sort of golfer amalgamation and gets into the genetically engineered bull semen down the road (oh yes, this is also in the bull semen capitol of the world) we should be fine.
No pavers yet. We uncovered something. A chamber of some sort.
The General is reading right now.
I know I was pretty low maintenance and I'm no longer a customer.
Now I can now that they finally figured out how to do their job.
It's pretty sad when their most senior member of a team can't even do their job correctly. Which is why I'll never buy anything from Paizo.com ever again.
Long story short, more than a week ago I tried switching to a Starfinder Adventure subscription, then tried getting customer service to switch the current adventure in the pending order to the subscription.
Well they made a mess of things, cancelled the current adventure in my order and spawned not one, but two separate orders for Red Shift Rally and the Kobold King Hardcover, while leaving the current bigger order in limbo.
I've been trying to reach customer service department for EIGHT DAYS and have heard absolutely nothing. I've tried responding to the original email chain, and I've tried starting a new email chain, all to no avail.
Well, you're not getting any more of my money if you're going to ignore me.
So far my only recourse is to change the expiration date on my payment method, hopefully that's enough.

So you HAVE worked in construction before!
That coupled with the customer service brain drain coupled with the fact that everyone who could have trained them is now gone coupled with the fact that it's now actually easier and cheaper getting it from my local game store I'd rather give my money directly to the game store. Also people I know and trust from Toys R Us work there and I can't say that about Paizo anymore.
The breaking point waa having to send 5 emails to get my Red Shift Rally switched over to a sub and they STILL haven't gotten that right and all they've done is congratulate themselves for messing up my sidecart and current order so nothing will ship until it's resolved but instead of resolving they've decided to ignore me (last email I got from Paizo was Wednesday of last week. It wasn't a difficult request and shouldn't have been allowed to fester this long.
Yeah, I've been trying to get my Red Shift Rally switched over to a subscription. So far in four emails all they've done is put Red Shift Rally in my sidecart. Congratulate themselves for putting it in my sidecart. And then finally put it in an entirely separate order with the Kobold King Hardcover which doesn't come out until September.
Not very confident in the customer service department to be honest if they can't figure out a simple request.
Doesn't matter, if you're working in food service as anything other than a chef chances are you turned your brain onto other things the moment you walked into work.
Why do you think so many musicians start a song writing story with "Yeah, I wrote this when I was working in that s**& hole!".

Bears can both run and swim faster than most humans. So, if you ever face one in a triathlon, you better hope your bike game is strong.
I can bike and I can run but as far as swimming goes I might as well stop on the shore and let him eat me because I do not like swimming at all.
As someone who used to sell the death trap emergency room godsends I can say with certainty, that's just what "hoverboards" do.
Now that it's been a month since Crookshanks graduated we have started to get letters from student loan mills saying "We've noticed you haven't started gathering crippling debt yet, you should start that!".
Unfortunately for them Crookshanks has absolutely no desire right now to continue her academic pursuits.
I finally found out why Jose doesn't like me.
I had a bunch of the Latino guys working with me yesterday and I asked them "who has experience with pavers or installing patios?" Their answer "Jose".
So I guess it's because of jealousy or spite. It's not because I'm lazy or a jerk, I didn't even start messing with him until I'd determined he doesn't like me (I know how to say "you're an a++@*@$" in 5 different languages, Spanish just so happens to be one of them) and then he started being lazy this year.
