Do you need to express your total and supreme indifference to somebody in a concise manner that leaves no doubt as to your intentions? Look no further for inspiration!
Watch me not care.
- (pointing at a map) Do you see this tiny island?
I almost care.
Does this look like the face of concern to you?
If I ever care about your opinion, I shall not hesitate to mention it to you.
What, precisely, has given you the impression that I give a fuck?
I don't remember asking for your opinion.
Did I ask you how your day was?
I don't mind that you are talking so long as you don't mind that I'm not listening.
I hear what you're saying but I just don't care.
I'm busy now. Can I ignore you some other time?
Pardon me, but you've obviously mistaken me for someone who gives a fuck.
If I seem to give a fuck, please tell me. I would hate to be giving the wrong impression.
Roger, at Cornell University, they have an incredible piece of scientific equipment, known as the tunneling electron microscope. Now, this microscope is so powerful that by firing electrons you can actually see images of the atom, the infinitesimally minute building block of our universe. Roger, if I were using that microscope right now, I still wouldn't be able to locate my interest in your problem.
