People Share Their Best "I Don't Care What Anyone Thinks" Stories

People say they don't care what others think but, let's be honest - they do. But, I don't really care, do u?

ChrDav asked, What screams "I don't care what anyone thinks of me."?

Submissions have been edited for clarity, context, and profanity.

If you really didn't care, you wouldn't tell people you didn't care.

Not screaming "I don't care what anyone thinks of me."

It seems like the most insecure people have to tell the world this. If they really didn't, they wouldn't want to let anyone know.

It's my default presumption tbh. But like also like me.

Being okay with knowing some people don't like you.

If you truly don't care, you'll ghost from social media without a word.

Deleting your FB/Twitter/whatever account and not saying anything about it.

edit: To the people jumping at the chance to tell me they deleted their Facebook, thank you for proving that point. You do care!

I gave up long ago.

"You know the message you're sending out to the world with these sweatpants? You're telling the world, 'I give up. I can't compete in normal society. I'm miserable, so I might as well be comfortable." - Seinfeld

Hentai on a shirt at work...

An ahegao shirt.

There are few things more annoying than when you are seeking advice and someone responds with a boring platitude that helps no one. Believe it or not, if you choose to provide advice, it needs to be specific to the situation and shouldn't be dressed up in trite phrasing. Does saying, "Keep your head up" actually contribute anything if that's all you have to say when someone comes to you in search of a listening ear?

But this goes deeper than just advice, to be fair. Some of us are sick of greedy corporations that stress the importance of being a "family" while refusing to pay proper wages. Still more of us are tired of people using certain language when other language can suffice.

After Redditor BensReddits asked the online community, "What is a phrase you absolutely hate hearing?" people shared their stories.

We all know someone who really cannot figure out even the most basic thing without copious amounts of help. But when you meet someone who is completely and totally past all help, how do you even begin to try to help them get along?
