This doesn't bother me at all (I'm not that anal...at least not when it come to something non-sexual), but I wanted to write about it, because it's amazing how many people misuse the phrase; "I could care less."

The expression is meant to imply; "it would be impossible for me to care less than I do, because I do not care at all."

If your using "I could care less" instead of "I couldn't less", then your using the wrong phrase.

Think about it, if you could care less, then you at least care some.

If your saying; "I could care less", then what your saying is that there are things that you care less about than the subject that your were using sarcasm to knock.

If you use "I couldn't care less", then what your saying there is nothing that you can care less about than the current subject, which is your goal in saying it.

Wait smartass...I know what your thinking:

"I couldn't care less about this blog!!!"

When time goes on,
as time always will,
and your daily life
seems all uphill.

When you wanna laugh
but can only cry.
When life spits directly
in your eye.

When you really feel
that you'd like to quit.
Don't run to me
I don't give a shit.

I disagree (respectfully).

"I couldn't care less" is a literal statement that contains no irony, unless one doesn't actually mean it, and hence it is less effective.

"I could care less," when delivered as if one couldn't care less, is a hugely ironic slap in the face. When it seems obvious from someone's demeanor that she couldn't care any less about a topic of interest to her, it's astounding to hear her state that she could care even less. I mean, if that's what she's like when she still has some caring left, what does she look like when it comes to things about which she cares absolutely zero? Unbelievable!

Just wanted to make my own contribution to the absurdity.

Sort of off track here but it was brought to my mind while reading your blog...there are some phrases in common usage that I just don't get. Namely, "I love him/her to death." Do they mean that their love will kill that person? Or do they mean until death? And, if that is what is meant, why would you stop loving them just because they are mo longer walking this earth?

You hit the nail with "I couldn't care less" ...but the phrase " I could care less" has an understood additive, which is "but, this isn't worth my time and effort to even consider adjusting my feelings"....just thought you might want to know...lol
