It is a constant source of amusement when I hear someone utter 'I could care less' when they are attempting to portray complete apathy. I would assume that they mean to say 'I couldn't care less' as this would show that to care any less than they currently do would be impossible. To say 'I could care less' implies that there is in fact, some degree of caring taking place. Another trite statement that staggers me is, 'Who died and made you ---?' Wouldn't the obvious answer be ---, since the only way I could have taken over the position is if it has been recently vacated? Just goes to show why I don't have a lot of friends.
