    Hello! how do you say 'do i look like I care?' (fem)
    In a sarcastic, cool way if someone is making a dig at them.
    merci beaucoup :)

    Good question, I use that a lot! Other ways of saying it in English are:
    (Do) you think I care?
    See how much I care! (showing no facial expression)

    Hi georgian111,

    I first thought of Est-ce que j'ai l'air d'en avoir quelque chose à foutre ? (very colloquial), then La bave du crapeau n'atteint pas la blanche colombe (rather literary :rolleyes:), but I think that in such occasion I would naturally say (with the appropriate bored expression) Cause toujours, tu m'intéresses... (sarcastic as you wish, and just colloquial enough IMO).

    I'm not quite sure to understand what this expression means.
    Could you give us some examples of its use?

    Thank you! That is brilliant! J'ecris une dialoge, au lycee- une pause cafe, using verlan. I suppose it would be appropriate to use the first example? Thank you

    well some examples, maybe if somebody has said
    'eugh, je deteste tus vetements'
    then you may say, ' do i look like i care?!'

    Well, it seems the meaning is what I guessed, finally.
    This sentence is the one I thought of.
