    Last night i was spitting in the bin in my bedroom because i have a cold. It was that loud kind of throat-clearing spitting where someone clears their throat and then spits out the phlegm/mucus.

    The window was open and so was the woman's downstairs and because i had made that sound a few times the woman, out loud, copied me (making the sound) because she was annoyed. So i shut the window. This was just before bedtime.

    I woke up at 5am and (there are 5 flats in this building), then picked up a broom and started banging the floor really hard with the handle end to show her how i felt about her rude behaviour. It made so much noise and she woke up and started banging on my door!

    I shouted through the letter box that she should stop harassing me or i'd report her to the landlord so she said "right!" and stormed back into her flat. This was literally 2 and a half hours ago and I dont know what's going to happen next. What should i do?

    Why did you wake her up at 5am? Because she did exactly the same thing as you the night before? If that's the case, it sounds like you're in the wrong. She had every right to then come up to your flat, knock on the door, and ask you to cut it out. She's not harassing you. It doesn't sound like you have anything to report her for at this point, unless you've left a big chunk of the story out. Just move on, or apologise and try to make friends. It's worth at least trying to get on with your neighbours.

    I'm inclined to agree with chelseagg3r - two wrongs don't make a right

    Should have just ignored the cow for copying you
