Its so stupid when people say that! It's annoying too. If you could care less about something that means you care about it! Its COULDN'T care less.

Its even more stupid than when people say "Your an idiot" or "Learn some gammer". At least they make sense!

I couldn't car.... no to obvious *thinks of snappy response*

Yea it's something I've posted in forums about before saying "WOW it's couldn't care less, not could care less" and there response is  "so, it doesn't matter"

IT DOES, because what you're saying makes no sense. I know people on other forums who say it all the time, even though I've said "hey you look like an idiot when you say that"

It's just something that really gets on my nerves.

Why do people use the term "a lot". What defines a "lot"?
A lot, like, a car lot?

#5 Edited by Brainkiller (165 posts) -

Because alot isn't a word.

and a lot means many.

Could care less and couldn't care less are completely the opposite, which makes it annoying when some dumbass says "I could care less"

It's because people are used to hearing the phrase "could care less" It started out as a mispronounciation like saying "Ax" instead of "ask". Reading it over the internet just makes it much more noticeable.

Lot can mean "a great many"

Perhaps they're expressing their genuine interest in the subject at hand?

Think before you post.

Great advise. You should take it.

Who the hell would say "I could care less" meaning their interesting in it?

The dictionary. It's informal, but it's well-established. Presumably it originates from this definition:

Dictionary.com:
4. allotted share or portion: to receive one's lot of an inheritance.
If you're going to complain about that, you might as well ban all colloquialisms. "Could care less", on the other hand, is corrupted to the point of having the opposite meaning to what is intended. Not that that means you have to consider it significant, but it winds people like me up.

I feel like Andy Rooney.

I hate when people use "lol" "wtf" and "jk" in actual conversation.

#15 Posted by Black_Raven (1759 posts) -

Lol yea iv noticed that a lot in forums like gamespot. I even quoted someone and explained that what he was supposed to say was "i COULDN'T care less" and that "i could care less" means the compleate oposite.

#16 Posted by Aarny91 (3912 posts) -

Well they could care less and not even know about it.

#17 Posted by Knives (711 posts) -

They say "could care less" because they couldn't care less. We all know what they mean.

#18 Posted by Colonel_Cool (808 posts) -

That is certainly a pet peeve of mine.

#19 Posted by Sentry (4197 posts) -

I kid.

 I know exactly what you mean! if I'm talking to you in person,I want a human conversation. I understand if someone's typing, but seriously?

I think it was originally supposed to be sarcastic, but over time people forgot to change the tone of their voices.
