And regarding syntax, which option is the one you use?

or
2. I couldn’t care less.

Nope. Don’t watch, never have. My impression of AI, from reading little snippets about it, is that the judges are not just critical, but cruel and unkind. That sort of thing makes me cringe.I do have a bit of reality TV in my life. My personal favorites are Dirty Jobs and The Deadliest Catch. That might be because I do LOVE Mike Rowe — the “star” of Dirty Jobs and the voice of The Deadliest Catch.I always say “I COULDN’T care less” rather than “COULD”. The use of “irregardless” makes my skin crawl! :)

After much teasing from my husband, I now say “I couldn’t care less.” I take “I could care less” as shorthand for “I could care less . . . but I would really have to try.” (It does seem rather geographically limited in its use.)
