[tps_title]6. I could care less.[/tps_title]
Care – To attach importance to something
So, if you could care less, then you care more, right? You actually feel for that person or for a situation. What you’re trying to say is that you couldn’t care less. We don’t know how the original expression evolved to this but it doesn’t make sense. You’re actually contradicting yourself because you’re saying you care but you act like you don’t. But hey, it’s your business, so we couldn’t care less, really.
