Hi Pleistocene, the correct term to reflect the meaning that you have no more caring to give is, |
"I could not care less", not "I could care less".
If you say that you could care less, that means you still have more care to lose yet, insinuating that you still do care.
I am not an expert in English, but there are some bad usage examples of English that prompt a response from me. I am only trying to stop any bad habits some people may have. You probably got them from your friends. But, pay attention to the meaning of what comes out of your mouth.
There is another horrible saying that comes from the US, "I didn't do nothing", which means that I did do something. The cops must love it when someone says that when they are arrested, it is like a confession or admitting ones guilt.
The correct form is, "I did not do anything".
"I didn't do nothing" is a double negative.
If I did not do nothing, then I must have done something.
Now you can have a laugh at the people that say this, and I bet they will have a hard time understanding what you are laughing at.
Simple really, isn't it.
