When I got my job, I tried to fit in the job and do all the required duites. Last year, my boss shifted some duties from my co-worker to me because my co-worker was sitting there doing nothing just waiting to retire. Finally, she had retired, and we have justed hired a new person. However, this new co-worker has convinced my boss to have part of her duties shifted to me. For one other duty which cannot be shifted, she simply said she wanted the duty to be deferred. I didn't know you can do this as a new person on the job!
My boss is a person who is not fair and not competent. She always closes her office door and does not want to be bothered. It is easier for her just to dump the work on my desk than to be pestered by the new person. When I asked her about the additional work that is not in my duty list, she said, "things have changed", or it is a good idea that you share the work.
My question is:
How do people normally handle situation like this?
With this new person trying to give away work to me, (she already hinted to me that she has some other duties that she wanted me to work with her), and with a boss who does not really care who does what so long as the work is done, what should I do?
By the way, I have a heavy workload and my hands are full. People often see me working hard at my desk while my co-worker chatting with people around the office.

Just do your job and nothing more.

Time management is the best thing to tackle with work load.

keep your head down and stick to your job. Document everything!!! One advantage is that the more duties they assign to you the greater your "presence" will be and when it comes time to cutting the strings they will cut yours last because they will be thicker...so that co-worker that chats with people while you are hard at work will not be seen to be as valuable as you.
