Public Service Announcement.. You could care less?

It's not "I could care less" It's "I couldn't care less" because you are saying that you DON'T care.. If you COULD care less then you DO care at least a little!!!

Jeez!!! Sorry to go all "grammar police" but after seeing it like 15 times today I felt a public service announcement was in order!!

  • its cute when you gals get all offended. I'm not harping on simple spelling and grammar mistakes; I make them all the time. But, for pete's sake, it changes the MEANING of what you are trying to say when you use this phrase incorrectly. that's all :-)

  • My two biggest grammar pet peeves in the same conversation.

    DH: "It's a mute point" (Pet Peeve #1: misuse of the word mute)

    Me: "No, it's a MOOT point, not MUTE. A mute point would be one that isn't made because everyone involved kept quiet."

    DH: "Eh, Same Difference" (Pet Peeve #2: It is not the same difference. The words have two completely different meanings. Does anyone know when the term "Same Difference" would acurately apply to any statement?)
