For what little good it will do, I’d like to note my frustration with the countless people misusing "could care less" where they should be saying "couldn’t care less".

It’s annoying, because those three characters completely change the meaning of what you’re saying. If you could care less, it means you do care about it; whereas if you couldn’t care less, it means you don’t care about it one jot.

Is it really that hard to get it right? This has been another episode of "Little Things That Wind Me Up"; don’t bother going back through the archives to look for them, none of the previous ones are on here. Although they may be written up for your amusement. Now, back to your scheduled mangling of the English language.
