21 Best (How-to) Ways to Annoy Your Best Friend

Best friends are everything to us, aren’t they? Being with a best friend feels like being in heaven. They are the first person you call when things go downhill. A best friend is a person who gives you bad advice, but he or she is also the one who knocks some sense into your head when you are about to do something wrong. As much as we love spending time with our besties, we like to annoy them way better. Annoying your best friend feels like a hobby, doesn’t it? Are you trying to figure out ways to annoy your bestie? We have got you. We have put down a list of ideas that you can use to annoy or irritate your best friend. Read on…

1) Hang up the call after one ring

One of the best ways to annoy your bestie is by giving missed calls continuously. If you ever need to call him/her or he/she has asked you to call, simply give missed calls. Cut the calls on the first ring. This will annoy him/her very much. Make sure he/she does not break your phone, when you meet in person.

2) Reply just with Ks and HMMs

Have you ever been responded solely with hmm and k? Then you must know how annoying it is, right? Well, then just do this with your best friend. When he or she texts you, simply respond with a hmm or a k. will get on his/her nerves. You can also do this while talking on a phone call.

3) Continuously send chain text messages

Have you ever known a person who continuously sends chain messages on your WhatsApp and asks you to share them? This is so annoying, right? Collect a few of these chain messages and send your bestie these messages every hour. Let me alert you. If you are doing this thing with your best friend, I am damn sure you will be blocked on social media.

4) Spam inbox with thousands of random messages

Open our bestie’s inbox and send thousands of irrelevant messages, stickers, and emojis. Trust me, he/she will be so annoyed. He/she might even switch his phone off. This can also freeze his/her phone screen.


I hate all texts in UPPERCASE and also tried this thing on my bff. This is the best way to annoy your best friend online on social media platforms like WhatsApp or discord. So, whenever you are texting your best friend, type everything in uppercase. My bff called me and started cursing me. If he is not like my friend then trust me, he/she will go offline or might never text you.

6) SPOILER – Discuss every scene while watching movies

Next time when you watch an extremely interesting movie with your best friend, interrupt him/her in between and discuss the movie or something else. Even if you are watching it for the 1st time try to guess the next scene in the movie, otherwise read critics or watch the Youtube review videos before going to the movie and then comment on the movie.

7) Splash a glass of water to wake up your friend

Next time when you have a night in and your bestie is not waking up from his/her goodnight’s sleep, take a glass of water and pour it on his/her face. He/she will wake up in an instant and will be so annoyed. Beware, he/she might take revenge.

8) Toothpaste prank while he is sleeping

If your roommate is sleeping and you want to wake him/her up, put some toothpaste on his/her palm and tickle on the face. Toothpaste is harmless, I won’t recommend shaving foam. He/she will smack his/her hand in the face, which will be covered in toothpaste.

9) Lock your bestie in the bathroom

Locking in the bathroom is one of the most epic ways of annoying someone. Even adults do it. Next time your bestie is taking a shower in the bathroom, lock him/her inside. Do not open for at least 10 minutes. He/she will be so freaking annoyed.

10) Point out the grammatical error

Everyone gets annoyed when someone points out their grammatical errors. Well, do the same to your bestie. Whenever he/she is speaking, interrupt him/her and correct his/her grammatical errors. This thing will surely get on his/her nerves.

11) Stare at his or her phone screen

You might have experienced this while traveling on public transport, the person beside you stares at your phone and this is so annoying. I always imagine myself. So, next time when your bestie is texting in front of you, just stare at his/her phone continuously. 

12) Eat all the food from his or her plate

When you guys are planning on ordering some food, tell him that you don’t want anything. When the food arrives, ask him/her if you can taste his food. Take a bite and don’t stop, eat all of it. This is the best way. He or she will have to place another order.

13) Go against THE Bro-code

If you have a bro-code with your bestie to not date people he/she likes, then here is your cue. Just tell him/her that you are dating the person he/she likes currently. Trust me, you will be able to see the rage. Seriously though, don’t break the bro-code. (Bro being gender-neutral)

14) Post weird pictures on social media

Continuously take pictures of your best friend with him/her making weird faces and poses. If you are concerned about privacy and don’t want to post a real picture of him/her then tag your friend in weird photo posts. Memes are trending, create memes on your friend. Post them on social media to embarrass your friend. Trust me this will annoy anyone. Delete it later. Don’t keep them forever.

15) Call at 3 a.m.

Call your bestie at 3 AM in the morning and talk to him/her about random stuff. Do not let him/her hang up the call. He/she will be so annoyed, and you might end up not sleeping all night.

16) Set random alarms on his or her phone

Take your bestie’s phone when he/she is not around and set multiple annoying alarms at random times to wake up your friends like at 5 AM in the morning or maybe 02:20 AM. The alarm will go off when he/she is sleeping peacefully. If he/she is not short tempered, then will definitely break the phone and will curse you. I have tried this on my younger brother.

17) Repeating every word that comes out of your bestie’s mouth

Naturally, everyone has a tendency to keep their privacy. And here lies a traditional yet proven and effective method of annoying your friends. You will often find kids doing this. Simply, repeat everything your best friend says. This is one of the best ways to annoy him/her. 

18) Music to annoy your friends

Who doesn’t love music? But when best friends are there, even music can become relatable and annoying. Play some music for your friend keeping in mind their likes and dislikes. To put it simply, play music or any audio that they wouldn’t like or expect to hear. For example, if your friend doesn’t like dogs, play any dog barking audio. 

19) Pinch

Pinch someone and they would die to pinch you back! Whenever your friend tries to ignore you, use this trick and they would do anything to try to pinch you. This not only annoys them but is also a favourite time-pass. 

20) Act like a touchy friend

If you have a sensitive friend, you have an undue advantage over your friend. Just catch their sensitive body parts like their backs of the neck, waist, etc. It would produce an irritating vibration in their body. Who knows you may discover some cool but weird dance steps too when their body shakes!

21) Be sarcastic

Sarcasm is the need of the hour. Everyone wants to be sarcastic but no one wants to be the subject of sarcasm. And here lies the key. Use sarcasm and intentionally talk in a way to make him angry.
