SpiralArchitect Posted September 12, 2013 Report Share Posted September 12, 2013 It seems obvious that "couldn't care less" should be the correct usage, implying that you care so little about something that it isn't possible for you care any less i.e. you don't care at all. But the statement "could care less" with a sarcastic tone is also very common. I have seen both being used with equal frequency. The general excuse for the second statement is that it suggests sarcasm when used while the first one is quite point blank and serious.So, is the practical usage of "I could care less" acceptable?
