So here is the Story....

There are three women four if you include me that work in our office(small office 800sqft). Two of them are reasonable we will call them older lady and Hispanic lady... the third we will call self centered bitch....
 
My boss comes to me  a few weeks ago and says that because SCB doesn't enjoy being treated like a secretary she and I are going to change desks. Mind you I have my own office far removed from all the typical office gossip etc. I enjoy being by myself and my peace and quiet.  Boss man says that I have a much more calm demeanor and that I am better suited to answer the phone and sign people in for meetings etc.
 
Some history.....SCB has worked for the County for 12 yrs. in those 12 years she has worked in 7 different sections. I have worked for the County for 8.5 yrs and always for the same division. She will whine and stomp her feet and get what ever it is that she feels is necessary all at the expense of OL, HL, or myself. This last time before Boss approached me about the move  SCB came to me and said that she was going to request the move because her job as boss mans admin. support was too taxing along with answering telly  and  signing people in. Now I hold the same position as SCB except I do this job for two people not one.
 
So here I sit at my new desk in the middle of it all Smiling and gritting my teeth and wondering if boss man and SCB have something going on the side, I would never speak to him the way she does, she talks to him like she is yelling at a dog....
 
My question...is there anything I can do , or do I just hang on and hope she moves on?!? I literally HATE working with her but I love the job I do, not including answering phones etc..., HELP ME!?!

Damn I hate shit like this...it can really be a black cloud at work...Is Boss Man the only boss or is there someone else you can calmly and clearly explain the situation to...SCB should not be rewarded for being a shitty bitch!...and you shouldn't be punished for being easy going ....I would grit my teeth but try to find a way to basically tell someone in charge that you were happier before and would like things to go back to the way they were...she is just complaining louder than you...you've got to complain louder but in a softer way....she'll look like the unreasonable person she is...

Good luck!
