Sometimes it seems hypocritical or out of place to comment on a particular topic that you simply don't care about that topic or talking point.

Feel free to share the things here in life and the news that you struggle to give a toss about despite public attention. It could be a fad you don't get or something so in your face it makes you passionately scream "I don't care!"

I'll start... Harry and Megan, back in the news today, dividing opinion again. I don't care!

Reality TV, in the various guises. I really don't care about these people or what they have to say.

The memsahib,  District Nurse Sister Carol Evans has resigned today. She's said "sod it".... and isn't having any more. After 42 years service to the NHS she is of the belief that I would angry..

Oddly, I seem to be going the other way. I find that there are an increasing number of things that I would previously shrugged off or said, "That's just how things are" whereas now … not so much. It's

That upsets monarchists only. If you are not caught up in the virtues of knowing your place, it is a non-issue.

I think the older you get the less you care about a lot of things that once would have enraged you, you realise you can't change things so why bother reacting.

As a example of your point whenever education is mentioned be it Covoid related or the funding of not having any family involvement I just switch off mentally, couldn't care less, the same applies for royalty, celebrity, golf, tennis, horse racing darts, snooker and ru only flicker's a interest if the news is detrimental to it.

Showbiz news:

Always did seem vacuous and vain, but I actually think it helps fuel a desire to be famous completely outweighing the need to be, erm, a good person or even vaguely good at doing something to create self esteem.

As a result of this I can hand on heart say I don’t care and am sceptical about the fame credentials of showbiz characters where I can’t attribute it to talent in something.

Or the world is changing and I am getting old.

It's probably just lockdown frustration being rechannelled. I am very pleased to see just how radical on so many issues young people seem to be at the minute and I hope that continues. Far more so than I, or anyone I knew, ever really was.

As for things I genuinely don't care about now … I have next door to no interest in the nostalgia-thons a significant chunk of my friends seem to want to indulge in all the time. ("Who remembers why you needed a pencil with a cassette …" etc etc).

I also find that I now have no interest - and no interest in finding out - what's popular any more. Whether that's TV, film, music, books, whatever. And I used to be someone who was obsessed with the charts in all of those things until pretty recently.

Don't care about the content of showbiz news, but I care passionately about i's existence on the news. It gives me an excuse to shout incoherently at the TV instead of shouting at this forum. 🙂

I find the One Show perfect for that, I made it to the second minute yesterday before the biblical levels of banality made me swear at the simpering idiot (Ashley? Ashton?) making Alex Jones look like David Dimbleby.

Yes. It is nice not to be dead, but it seems to be the proudest acheivement of many people's lives.

I used to care passionately about lots of stuff but after it eventually soaking in that what will be will be be, I don’t really give a toss about almost everything and my aim is to try to enjoy what time I left have on earth. 
 

I still do care about homeless or lonely people or cruelty to children but certainly don’t even read about brexit or Trump or other nonsense. The sort of thing I’ve blocked very old friends on Facebook for I suppose.

Harry & Meghan been stripped of their Royal titles & Duties, well that's what they wanted when they went to her homeland, and told the British press to leave them alone. Except every two weeks there seems to be a press release from them.

I really don't care, but what income do they have now. Universal Credit?

Where were you last Thursday?

You must be kidding, they get (or got) millions from Netflix and Spotify. 

All they want is to left alone.

I think they should be dealt with like their Russian Cousins, loaded in to a Garage in Wolverhampton (Rather than Ekaterenburg), and body parts distributed to parts of the Empire HM Queenie has given to it's rightful owners. 

The only problem is there is so many of them....

60 listed here, and I am sure many more will come forward.

Bearing that in mind, here goes,

1. Masterchef.

2. Mockneys, such as Jamie Oliver

Not quite but ok. While this doesn't affect me due to having neither Facebook or friends with children but the cliche answer would be endless Facebook photos of your friends' children.

Thinking all refs are bent against my team(s) has totally disappeared. I much more readily watch sport for its theatre, rather than the result.

 

Sport is way more enjoyable once you accept that refs are fallible humans (like the players and coaches) and not corrupt bar stewards.

This morning's "Who gives a ****" moment is dedicated to Ms Kim Kardashian and Mr Kanye West.

One good thing to come out of this pandemic situation, is possibly the downfall of ridiculous ‘celebs’ like Gemma Collins et al. Possibly people will realise how ludicrous it was making such people famous....then again I’m probably fat shaming there so might be sent to the gulag.

I've seen far, far, far too many games in the flesh and on TV (across all sports) and the number of times I've, on reflection, thought that the referee was deliberately biased (not corrupt but favouring one side for whatever reason) is a bare handful. Probably somewhere around 0.01% of the total.

(This excludes any and all games involving the Qatar national handball team whose dubious lengthy journeys in some IHF tournaments are beyond eyebrow raising and now something of an open joke, along with the team).
