My wife and I were talking about this the other night and I still feel undecided about it. It’s about the two phrases: “I could give a crap” and “I couldn’t give a crap”. Which is it? You could or couldn’t?
I like Kelly better than Jim, mostly because I’ve heard of her (I found Jim’s use of the phrase with a google search). But then again, I don’t look to Kelly for proper use of the English slangatory.
So which is it? You could or couldn’t?
And besides that, either way, I don’t even really get the phrase though I know it’s meant to communicate you don’t care. I guess written as a mathematical equation it would be:
could give a crap because I don’t care < ?> couldn’t give a crap because I don’t care
Neither really makes sense but I just gots to know.
