You could care less-why don't you?

Option A: I couldn't care less

Option B: I could care less

IMO option B is basically saying you do care because you could actually care less. Option A is saying you could not care less, like you don't care at all so its not possible to care any less than you do now.

I say this because my friend told me she could care less about what I think of her boyfriend.

So she does care?

I see/hear people say the latter more often than the correct way. It makes me laugh. I sometimes like to ask them "Oh, you COULD care less?" just to pick on them. Lol

No she doesn't give a flying fig what you think of her boyfriend.  What she said was completely accurate.

I always say B

It's option a. It makes me wanna slap someone when they go with option b. If you don't care, then don't negate yourself by implying that you do.

I'm with you on this one, however here is my pov. If it's someone I respect I will always say, "I could care less." because it's true. I could honestly care less, but I don't want to.

If it's for gramatical reasons, or a friend/ aquantaince then I use "I couldn't care less" because at that point in time the statement is true. KWIM?
