    Ugh @Dorothygale that is frustrating. I'm also with you on HF - this is the second week in a row that the package of chicken breasts was leaking all over the box :sad: I let it go last week but this week I called in a rage, lol.

    The leaky meats are the worst! I had three incidents of leaking beef. I let the first one go but I was pretty annoyed after that. They gave me a really nice credit though. Just sucked because I still had to go out and replace the meats for those meals that night when the whole point of HF was to NOT have to go shopping.

    My packages have been fine this time, just the actual meals have been not the best. The sweet chilli turkey last night was so blah and tasteless.

    Ugh that is disappointing. We were able to still use the leaky chicken because we cooked it right away (and it smelled ok / was still cold) but I got the credit anyway for the second one b/c that's just unacceptable. A few weeks ago they screwed up an entire meal - sent us the ingredient bag for a meal we didn't want, and the protein for a meal we did, but that didn't go with the ingredient bag they sent, so we ended up going out an extra night.

    One of ours was okay and we used it, but the others looked like a blood bath when I opened the box - it was EVERYWHERE, the leak opening was a good two inches (honestly, HOW??).

    I feel like it's just the last few months they've been hastily packaged, we used to never have problems. Now it's either leaking meats, leaking cooler packs, or dying veggies.

    We never used to have issues either until recently! We've also had some sketchy veggies that were clearly past their best time before they arrived at our home. I'm considering trying another service because I'm getting pretty fed up. The refunds for the screwed up meals are fine, but I want the food, not the money!

    @Dorothygale my parents use Goodfood and like it a lot if you're looking to switch.

    @Zoomzoom we've actually been thinking of trying out GoodFood! We get a lot of discounts from them in our mail, I just haven't heard feedback from anyone I knew and all the reviews I've read/watched comparing it to HF seemed not as favourable. Maybe we'll give them a try though.

    I loved Blue apron when we used them but it ended up being kind of pricey compared to our normal grocery shopping. Especially with trying to choose vegetarian options but then add meat for N.

    W asked me last week about valentine's day and I told him I wanted nothing and didn't want to do presents. Cool, cool, we agreed, no presents. Now today he says he was out getting me something small and saw something else that he didn't even know existed but he is getting for me. Bitch, we said no presents and the damn "holiday" is tomorrow!!!

    This happens to us on Christmas (we don't celebrate V day) and every year S gets me something. This year I didn't even bother trying to figure it out. He bought me stuff and I did nothing whoops lol.

    I am both you and W. I always say I don’t want to do anything or do presents but then I see something J would like and I can’t help it. I think J just expects it now. :lol:

    We don't usually celebrate v-day either! Our tradition is to go out for pizza and watch hockey either on TV or in person. OK I guess that is celebrating, hahaha, but not really because it's pizza (which we have at least once most weeks regardless) and not presents or whatever.

    Although now I’m wondering if maybe N did the same - because usually when we agree on no gifts he spends like 5 days before the holiday constantly confirming that I really didn’t buy him anything, even a card, and Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and so far he hasn’t said a word. Hmmm.

    Listen, people, don't do this to your spouses! It's not fair! I looked on amazon and found nothing that jumped out at me so he's getting a cupcake if the cupcake place down the street has some tomorrow.

    I think I’m exempt from this rule because N is a repeat offender so he basically did this to himself. :lol:

    What is your problem today? First you shit on Rico's legit anxiety about being in the third tri and now you are being bitchy to me for whining in the thread that is for whining.

    I’m in the NICU with my 1.5lb baby who was born 3 months early, not even giving fucking Valentine’s Day a thought. These problems seem like... not problems from here.

    We're all aware, and I think people have been pretty supportive. Lashing out at us for living our regular lives isn't going to improve your situation.

    You tried to bring the receipts but you showed up to the wrong store. Youre in the damn whining thread for fucks sake.
