For me I say that a truck with a cab longer than its bed is not a truck, but an SUV with an overgrown bumper.

It’s “I could not care less” not “I could care less”. If you could care less, then that means you care. If you can’t care less, then that means you are all out of fucks to give.

I’ve read somewhere that English teachers and grammarians agree that “I couldn’t care less” is the correct one, and it makes more sense to me too.

Although, I can see how “I could care less” could mean that: you care so little that if you wanted you could care even less, but you don’t care enough to do that.

Yeah, I’ve always thought it could be a good retort when someone is dissatisfied with the amount of resources you’ve already put towards some thing.

“Wow, thanks for getting me only 20 bucks in my birthday card”

“you’re only volunteering for a day? They are volunteering for at least three”

“Gross, you’re got me a used laptop?”

I could care less but barely.
