Could not care less

verb phrase

One simply does not care; one is sublimely indifferent •In a curious development, the original British negative form has been changed to affirmative by many US speakers, without change of meaning; such contradiction is more common in slang than in standard speech: I couldn’t care less if you like me or not/ I could care less if you like me or not
