When someone tells you that they don’t’ care, they are basically saying that they are not interested in the topic you are discussing and it is basically not relevant to them. They are telling you to either change the subject or shut up.
If they are a smart ass teenager, they will probably say, “I don’t care!” with attitude and contempt. If you are talking about a trivial conversation like what’s for dinner it’s not a big deal. If you are talking about a subject that is pretty important to you, it is really offensive to hear someone tell you that they don’t care.
Actions actually speak louder than words, you can always tell what people think of you by their actions towards you. Whenever someone is a jerk to me I always think I have less obligation towards them. I don’t have to be polite and listen to them warble on about rubbish anymore.
