Level of Care

Assume: Level of care can be put on a scale of 0-10 where ‘0’ means you don’t care at all and ’10’ means you care with all your heart.

If you say “I could not care less” that means that you are at Level ‘0’, ie you don’t care at all. Nothing can be less than ‘0’ according to this scale.

If you say “I could care less” that means that you are NOT at Level ‘0’, ie you do care to an extent.
