OP had a grammar issue. The officer really meant he could care less about the excuse. OP made the officer feels like he couldn't care less and a ticket was called for.

You know, what most people don't realize is you don't actually speak in standard English (the thing all the grammar nazis die over) you tend to speak with an accent, and much less formal as well. Standard English is only expected when writing a paper, and while it is nice for a commenter to use it, it is in no way required.

In this case, not only was op rude, he was incorrect. The officer COULD care less about his excuse, and his modicum of care was going to let op off with a warning. After the "correction" he couldn't care less and simply wrote the citation.

No the officer was wrong. "Could care less" doesn't make a whole lot of sense. It means you care at least the smallest amount of caring but we don't know how much that is do we? It makes sense if the officer said he couldn't care less about his OP's excuses because he saw him break the law so it doesn't matter what they are. Also the OP doesn't even know if he actually was not going to get the ticket "He was probably about to let me go".

But it doesn't make sense! You can't remove a word and expect it to have the same meaning! I could NOT care less. I could care less. See how the word "not" makes a difference. There is a difference between colloquialisms and using incorrect English. Also you are confusing accent with dialect.

Usually people get pissed off when you correct them, there have already been several FML's regarding something bad happening when people correct other peoples.

62- You may want to enclose song lyrics in quotation marks and name the song after the quote. If you really want to impress, put slashes after each line. Then there's no room for misinterpretation. If it makes you feel any better, I got the reference. :)

62 - and they're like shit so are we why don't you roll with me, we're gonna go 'round pulling over some minorities.

113 - what? No one said anything about filtering the cop. I meant next time OP wants to be a smart ass he should really just shut up.

I don't get why people say it like that. If you "could care less" then you could care less. That doesn't tell us anything about how much you care. It is kinda annoying.

Well when you say "couldn't care less" it means you care so little that you cannot care any less. "Could care less" means you can care less than you actually are.

I don't get why people overanalyze stuff like that and give so much of a fuck? Everyone KNOWS what they mean, even if they say it incorrectly

Red cars appear to move faster than other colors so they get pulled over a lot. Something to do with how humans perceive light.

And the times which this rule does not apply are: 1. Eating 2. Drinking 3. Giving an awesome BJ to your man. 4. Giving an excuse to your boss why you're late for work, again. Any more reasons?? Hmm.... Got to think this out more. Feel free to add any suggestions you like. Lol
