Things That Irk Me

I've seen this used quite a bit lately...

"I could care less"

It doesn't make sense to me. :BangHead:


Oh, and "irregardless" :BangHead:

Oh, and "irregardless" :BangHead:
Ask the next person who tells you "I could care less" how much less he could care. "Irregardless" cropped up fairly recently. There isn't much by way of response . . . although, I suppose you could ask the next hapless who elects to use it to explain the word's etymology and whether they're aware that it's contradictory. :laughing6 At least it'll help you diffuse the irritation. The great unwashed will flounder; an educated soul should blush. :icon_bigg

I have done exactly that in the past. It usually results in a blank stare, then a furrowed brow followed by STFU!! :laughing6

This is a favorite of a former co-worker of mine. Everybody gave him about it, even some clients. :BangHead:

I hate when people start a thread and put a stupid title that does not give you any idea what the tread is about.
