4 Ways To Annoy Your Teacher Without Getting In Trouble

Annoying teachers without getting into trouble is challenging, but not impossible. The key is to know your teacher's limits and patience. First, the annoying behavior will slightly test his patience. Over time, he will become less and less tolerant of your actions. When you feel your teacher reaching the limit, stop for a few days to avoid getting into trouble.


Method 1 of 4: Being forgotten on purpose

Annoy Your Teacher Without Getting in Trouble Step 1

Step 1. Borrow a pen or pencil whenever you can

Writing tools, such as pencils and pens, are a must-have in a classroom-and you'll need to use them at some point. Forgetting to bring a pen to class will prevent you from participating in the activities proposed by the teacher. Every time you forget, your teacher will either have to lend you some or accept that you don't do the work - both options are pretty annoying.

  • To avoid consequences, bring your kit to class a few days a week.
  • Five or ten minutes after everyone starts doing their homework, let the teacher know you don't have a pencil. He will be frustrated that he hasn't said it sooner.
  • Ask your teacher for several pencils throughout the day.

Step 2. Bring the wrong materials to class

Some teachers ask students to bring some specific content, notebook or book to class. Instead of carrying such items, leave them at home on purpose. When appearing in class always without the requested materials, your teacher will be irritated.

  • To avoid punishment, do this only once or twice a week.
  • If you leave the materials in the locker, the teacher may (somewhat reluctantly) let you get them.
  • Before doing this, check the school or classroom policy. Forgetting materials can have consequences.

Step 3. Submit homework late

Teachers often set deadlines because it's beneficial to both parties. Deadlines teach students to plan ahead and manage time better, while teachers use deadlines to determine how much time they have to grade exams, plan activities, and set up class schedules. By delivering a schedule late, you will disrupt the class's progress.

  • Be selective about late-delivered work - you should still score high. Final exams, assignments and projects are usually worth points and should not be forgotten. Only submit late work if they are not worth many points.
  • Submit the work one or two days after the deadline.
  • If you are going to give the work to the teacher, ask when he will grade and correct it. Keep asking until he has actually made the correction.

Method 2 of 4: Slightly Disturbing Lessons

Annoy Your Teacher Without Getting in Trouble Step 4

Step 1. Arrive late

Teachers expect students to be in class on time. Arriving after the bell will cause the teacher to interrupt the class, distracting the other students. Increase your teacher's frustration by:

  • Chat with other students on the way to your desk.
  • Asking “Did I miss something important?”.
  • Saying “We don't do anything in the first five minutes anyway”.
  • Ask to use the bathroom as soon as you sit down.
  • Don't be late every day, or you'll end up exceeding your accepted lateness limit.

Step 2. Ask to use the restroom at inconvenient times

Teachers often have elaborate procedures to free students to go to the bathroom and prevent them from leaving at inappropriate times. Blatantly ignoring the rules is a great way to piss off your teacher.

  • Limit the number of times you do this to avoid bigger problems.
  • Ask to use the restroom immediately after class starts or as soon as the bell rings.
  • Ask to use the bathroom in the middle of an explanation.
  • Ask to use the restroom as soon as your teacher has an activity in class.
  • Fill out the toilet clearance incorrectly.

Step 3. Sharpen pencils often

Pointers make loud and annoying noises, especially if they are automatic and not manual. Annoy your teacher (and your classmates, consequently) by sharpening your pencils in the middle of an explanation during class.

  • Don't be in a hurry when sharpening your pencil. Pull it out of the wand at all times to make sure the tip is sharp.
  • Before returning to your place, accidentally “break” the tip of the pencil to have to sharpen it again.

Method 3 of 4: Acting Selflessly or Dramatically During Class

Annoy Your Teacher Without Getting in Trouble Step 7

Step 1. Do not participate in the lessons

Teachers often spend a lot of time writing each lesson so that the content is enjoyable and accessible to students. Instead of being grateful for the effort he put into lesson planning, you can irritate him by refusing to participate in lessons or activities.

  • Scribble in notebook instead of taking notes.
  • Browse the Internet on mobile.
  • Lay your head on the table and pretend you're asleep.
  • Talk to your peers while the teacher is speaking.
  • Watch your watch constantly.
  • Put a small book into your subject book and read it.
  • If the teacher catches your attention, stop immediately. Don't get into bigger problems just to piss him off.

Step 2. Show lots of excitement to participate in the class

Teachers tend to get angry at students who try to draw attention to themselves. Instead of acting calmly and discreetly, be exaggerated and take your reactions to the extreme.

  • When your teacher asks a question, raise your hand and be extremely eager to answer - wave your hand in the air, stand up, yell and yell to get attention.
  • If you're frustrated, don't roll your eyes and sigh. Instead, say something unoriginal, like "Unbelievable!" or "Oh my God!"

Step 3. Make your teacher waste time

Teachers do their best to keep their students focused on tasks. You can hinder your teacher and irritate him during the process with harmless pranks or distractions.

  • When your teacher asks if anyone has questions, raise your hand and make a comment. When he lets you talk, make a random, long, slow comment that has nothing to do with the subject.
  • Make your teacher waste time hiding objects he uses daily, such as whiteboard pens, erasers, folders and staplers.
  • If the teacher becomes suspicious, stop bothering him for a few weeks.

Method 4 of 4: Annoying Your Teacher With "Positive" Behaviors

Annoy Your Teacher Without Getting in Trouble Step 10

Step 1. Gossip with your classmates

While students enjoy gossip and see the behavior even as a necessity, no teacher wants to spend the day solving student discussions. Teachers prefer students who deal with their own problems and don't meddle in other people's lives. However, going to a teacher with a superficial problem is not punishable.

  • Get the teacher's attention with minor problems throughout the day. Explain that one of the students isn't doing homework, doesn't want to share something, or isn't being kind.
  • Be careful as this can cause problems between you and your classmates. Meddling and gossip is always harmful and can damage your reputation.

Step 2. Seek the teacher's attention

The “darling” students generally have good behavior and grades. Instead of misbehaving, you can irritate your teacher by always trying to get his attention and want his approval. For this you can:

  • Ask for help when you clearly understand the subject.
  • Follow your teacher around the room.
  • Show your completed tasks to get his approval.

Step 3. Be an exemplary but disinterested student

There is nothing more frustrating for a teacher than a brilliant student who refuses to work hard on assignments. Whenever you receive an assignment, don't pay too much attention and turn it in quickly. When you take a test on the subject, submit exemplary content.

Don't be disinterested if you risk losing grades. If you can do the job, do the best you can and do it quickly, but without mistakes


  • Put your things away before the bell rings.
  • Call the teacher out loud and, when he looks, say “Nothing!”.
  • When the teacher speaks your name during the call list, yell “Missed!”.
  • Always ask unnecessary and out-of-context questions.
  • Purposely write illegible and use hard-to-read colored pens. You can also hand in papers written in pencil when you are asked to have them printed or written in pen (but this can cause you to lose points, however).
  • Spell your teacher's name incorrectly whenever handing in work.
  • Do not include a title in an essay if requested or give a nonsensical title such as “Biology Answer 1” or “Revolutionary Paper Wars”.
  • If the teacher speaks quickly, constantly repeat "Just a minute, I need to write this."
  • When he asks you to write something on the board, take longer than necessary on each word.
  • Ask questions like "How old are you?" in the middle of an explanation.
  • While he's talking, look him straight in the eye until he looks away.
  • While he's talking, drop his case and say "Sorry!" really loud.


  • Do not exaggerate. Your classmates may find you weird or very annoying.
  • Before trying to annoy your teacher, read the school or classroom rules. Identify which behaviors are and are not subject to punishment. If a certain behavior can cause problems, avoid it. If not, proceed carefully.
  • Don't overdo it - after a while, you might end up having problems.
