Next time she does that again, tell her "I'm busy" if she insists tell her "ok, but later, i have somethings to attend to" and be firm. She always ask you to do things because you perform them or because you obey her. Try to drag things, as you mentioned, it is her work and probably your boss ask her to do it. So if you drag it you'll boss will follow up on her, then it is her neck on the line. If she blames you, tell her you warned her that your busy. If nothing has change, next time she asked you to do something or get something, give it to your boss, not to her. Just be sure that your boss did asked her to do that, so your boss will know that you are the one who did the job. I hope i made some sense. lol If things did not work out, by all means beat her. hahaha. I have an office mate who is so.. grrrr. I just ignored her. Don't think about her, just pretend she doesn't exist, you have better things to worry about. Cheer up! ;)

Don't beat her up at your job...wait until you get off...LOL!! I have worked with women like that!! My response to her would be" Sure, I'll go pick up the whatever as soon as __________(insert your boss's name) tells me to go!" That way you are letting her know you are a team player but you only take orders from one person and that's your boss! Its hard to work with people like that so I can understand your frustration!! Good luck!!

Your statement shows that you doubt it may be your boss's order.....then what is the problem to do that? In a work place everybody should make maximum adjustments and work....You dont hate or beat her......try to understand the situation......if you are hating one person today, you will hate more than one in the coming days......and after one or two months you will hate everybody and everybody will hate you.......everything depends on the approach to a problem.......face the realities
