    Default Re: i don't care...

    I couldn't care less (BE)
    I could care less (AmE)
    I don't/couldn't give a monkey's. (This is very informal, and potentially offensive)
    Whatever. (Originally AmE I think, but growing in popularity over here.)
    My indifference knows no bounds. (I might have just made this up, but I can imagine saying it. )
    So what's new? (said after someone's given unsurprising 'news')
    And? (the same)

    b

    PS - Some US participants in this forum disapprove of "I could care less". But it's very common, and definitely not BE.

    "Whatever floats your boat"
    "It's no skin off my nose"
    "Ask me if I care."
