One of my biggest pet peeves in life is people who say "I could care less". Oh, you could care less? You're actually saying the opposite of what you intended on saying. And it's amazing to me the people and places I see that use it incorrectly... newspapers, television shows, books. "I could care less" makes absolutely no sense. How do you not realize this?!?!?!
