CAN YOU CARE LESS OR MORE?

You ever notice how some people express their disinterest in something by saying "I COULD CARE LESS!"?

I notice it a lot and it drives me NUTS. Obviously these are people who don't bother THINKING about what they say before they open their mouths.

Saying "I COULD CARE LESS" means you COULD care less but you DON'T - in other words, you DO care to some extent and that you COULD care less.

What you should say is "I COULDN'T CARE LESS."

See?

You couldn't POSSIBLY care less because it would be just IMPOSSIBLE because you don't care at all. There, no you can correct anyone who COULD care less.
