As crazy as Cranky Boss Lady drove me in our ten years together at the flower shop, that job did have one major benefit: there were no "office politics" because after the first year or so, it was almost always just the two of us and an occasional driver, sometimes seasonal help. If there was an issue (and there were many), there was just the two of us there to work it out--or not. There was no "he said/she said" stuff, no competitiveness, no drama--or at least less drama than in a workplace with more players.
To be honest, Cranky Boss Lady, still drives me a little crazy, but the way things have been going at my current job lately, I actually miss the simplicity of that variety of craziness.
