No @Adam, and I have since migrated to VMware ESXi which resolved the problem. I'll update my answer.

comment Is there a problem using resize2fs too often?
Fragmentation isn't exactly an area of concern because this particular server is already heavily virtualized and it's a RAID10 infrastructure. So I'm not too concerned about that. Also, it's the InnoDB tables that are growing for the most part. But a bug that renders the filesystem unresizable is pretty nasty @frostschutz!

Same here @sim but I get worried that resizing my company's MySQL filesystem might cause data loss... yet RAID10 space is very expensive and difficult to expend, so...

Thanks @sim! I edited it to show my actual output plus the formula, just because my PV actually has ~7 GiB free.
