    So I started a new job a few months ago. Everyone is lovely, bar one co working.
    Despite underminding me at every turn, telling me I'm unfair to not work through my lunch and suggesting I should come in on my days off - they all like to treat me as their PA.

    I fix every problem they make. So I'm basically their full tIme IT technician on other some jobs, and a PA on the other. If I don't do it in a scheduled time that suits them, I also get told off. I'm not actually below this person either in authority. In fact; we are qualified to the same level, holding the same grades from the exact same degree!

    The other day they made an error someone else got blamed for, but asked ME to pass the message on to the boss. I said no, I was busy, I have my own deadlines and personally I didn't want to get involved, but they kept repeating themselves, saying "just do it, look do it" then went home.

    Later today, after a meeting, I helped clear away pens and paper for them. Instead of helping, they demanded I get all the pens that they missed, without a please or a thank you.

    They'd forgot their paper and asked me why I hadn't collected it.
    As I've said I'm not actually a PA, the only person I answer to is my senior, and do help out my team when I'm asked.

    I don't know how to approach This, should I complain to my boss???

    I'd complain to your boss. You're their co-worker; not their slave.
