Generosity

Today, my granny died. My aunt wants to throw away all her books and furniture. When I offered to take care of selling it, or giving it away, like granny would have wanted, my aunt said she would let me "keep a percentage" of the few bucks I’d get for my troubles. FML

95% is still a percentage. You can toss her "a few bucks" since she seems to think that's all it's worth, and she sounds too lazy to even double check anyway.

Aunty won't know how much you sold for anyways. You can just say you gave it all away for free. If she was willing to put in some effort it would be different.

The aunt is likely "Granny's" child and usually has more rank than a grandchild.

Also, the aunt may know she's the executor (that's the proper term) of the will, so she may actually have that power to make such decisions.

Tbh, it depends on where it’s being stored in the mean time. Storage costs something to include if it is delaying selling a house. Anything you want to sell, get it out of there and in your possession now

i know someone that had a similar situation, someone asked her if she wanted the wine from someone who died. he had a lot, so she took it on, there was a lot that was old and not worth anything. after renting something to bring it home and using a lot of time sorting it, she found that some of it was worth something. the person who had asked her to take it thought it unfair after, cause it was his inheritance and wanted the ones that was worth a little money.
