Dear GYA, Will someone please gently inform my mother-in-law that no one likes her damned wicker-furniture set? When I'm sitting on the front porch, the last thing I want to do is rest my ass on a woven pile of painted sticks. ---They're sticky, hot and generally uncomfortable. When it comes to chairs, if you have to add a pillow to make it tolerable, it needs to be thrown away. Anything happening today once I figure out a way to get rid of this wicker set? - Kate Wippler, Ogden
