“I Couldn’t Care Less”

20 May

This phrase drives me nuts — because most people do not use it properly. More often than not, you hear people say “I could care less.” I heard it again this morning on ESPN’s Sport Center. Well, if someone COULD care less, then that means that they do care at some level. The proper “I COULDN’T care less” makes a lot more sense … meaning there is nothing in the world they care any less about.

Take it for what it’s worth. If you’re going to keep this one in your bag of verbal tricks, please use it correctly. And thanks for caring enough to read today’s rant. Humor me, people!
