OMG that caught me offguard and literally made me snort with laughter!!
Ah well, my wise Senior Manager thinks the time has come "to mend fences before this grows into a larger issue." In other words, she finally collected all her ammo from HR and (only 6 days later!) stormed into his office to demand action.
I talked to our Senior Admin while Her Odiousness was in the Sr Mgr's office, and let her know what was going on - only one other person in the department had heard anything about it (from me at least; another "mean girl" was privy to all the dirt from the other side). Turned out to be a lucky thing I did. The witch came over to vent at the Admin, and she very kindly explained my side of it. The seed of doubt was planted. I shall now begin to reap what has been so serendipitously sown. If I pull this off I will merit a Pulitzer for drama. I plan to have her wiping a tear from her eye and apologizing to me for being so heartless all these years.
OK, no that will never happen, but I WILL wrangle a more advantageous seating arrangement (also courtesy of the Senior Admin's ideas) that will get me out of her phone call range, and she (and mean girl 2, if I know anything about how this works) will decide that they misjudged my terrible (but one-time-only behavior).
