I always find it best to just keep polite and distant relationships with my co-workers. Even if we would be best friends otherwise, I just wouldn’t want to work in a clique-y environment.

Both constantly complain to me about each other.

my thoughts are people that do this are most probably bitching about you behind your back as well. 

be switzerland, do not get involved, do not engage in any conversation about the other and do not repeat anything someone else said – as you learnt, you will only get burnt

I agree with the other posters. Work is such a special zone, that you have to treat it differently than any other area of your life. Where you would typically be a good friend or up-front with others, you have to be a lot more discerning in your work place.

Use this as a learning experience. Set boundaries with people.

I used to work in a very clique-y environment and I learned to just keep my mouth shut. I might be with these people more than anyone else, but I am not going to get that close to them. I steer clear of people that hang out in groups and talk about others. Next time just shove a scandalous novel at them and run! Should keep them busy for a while.
