say 'i COULD care less about...' when they actually mean 'i COULDN'T care less about...'?

 

it says the exact polar opposite of what you actually mean! it's not just a little wrong, it makes out like you saying the 100% exact opposite of what you think you're saying.

 

it's not even like this forum is populated by idiots. most people here are pretty articulate and have decent spelling and grammar, but this simple mistake comes up time and time again.

 

can you tell i've had a drink? :eek:

Oh god, don't even get me started on the misuse of the common apostrophe.

 

My worst nightmare is a takeaway round here where their menu states that they sells 'Pizza's'. DROP the {censored}ing apostrophe.

 

Is it really that hard to learn how to use them? It was the kind of basic {censored} we learned in school aged 8, if I recall.

You nailed it on the head. This mistake and not using capital letters to begin new sentences really demonstrate the illiteracy of the posters on this forum.

I too, have been complaining about that retarded grammatical error for years. Everytime I hear someone in a movie use it correctly, I smile to mysef.

Like in Casino royale

"I dont think I can trust you"
"Then don't, I couldnt care less."

And I was bummed, when one of my rock heroes, Jack White from the white stripes, used it incorrectly

"I could care less about her".

Nooooooooo.
