I am in problem. A month before I got job, I was allocated an office. It is a shared office for 3 persons. Everyone is assigned with a table and cupbourd. After a month I changed some setting in office only in my portion, just exchanged my cupboard with table in setting. One of my colleague changed the whole setting in my absence. I asked why? She said "why you didn't ask to me?" Alongwith this she offered me to take her place. I was not agreeing on thes. And she was saying again and again that "would you like to exchange setting with me"? My mind was fully confused and I took decision to change the place with her. Which is I think a big mistake. After exchanging place she threatened me that she will complain against me in a very harsh way if I changed anything again. Now I amon her previous place. Now I am so much worried abou her threatning? Please suggest me what should I do to get my place back because I was threatened for this place. Plus tell me where I did anything wrong in all this according to your point of view?
So as I understand it:
- you moved the furniture around
- your colleague moved some furniture around, and this seems to have been the point at which conflict started
- your colleague persuaded you to swap places
- your colleague now threatens to make trouble for you if you move the furniture again.
And you have two motivations:
- to get your old place back
- to avoid further conflict with the colleague
The problem is your two motivations are contradictory. Insisting on a move back or moving stuff again will certainly reignite the conflict, and you already know your boss views your colleague more favourably. This is where it is difficult for us to advise you, as we cannot tell how important these are to you. If being in a different place is just an irritation because you feel your colleague has cheated you, you need to ask if this is really worth the risk of reopening the conflict and dragging your boss into it. At the other extreme, if the new desk is physically problematic for you to the point where it harms your work, you absolutely should raise it. You need to judge that for yourself.
