Question and answer
does Hamlet enjoy confusing Rosencrantz and Guildenstern when they come to tell him to go to his mother?
He wilfully misunderstands them and leads them off on tangents just to baffle them. [ Eventually, in this scene, he gets tired of fencing with them and outright accuses them of attempting to manipulate him so as to find out more about him (which, of course, is exactly what they are doing). Guildenstern gives the mealy-mouthed answer "Oh, my lord, if my duty be too bold, my love is too unmannerly" which is to say "We're only doing this because we care about you." and Hamlet gets really mad at them and compares what they are doing to playing a musical instrument. Basically, by the end of the
scene he tells them to get lost, and for the rest of the play he holds them in utter contempt (see the next time they meet when Hamlet calls Rosencrantz a sponge) ]
