Spanish phrase: Me importa un pepino

I care a cucumber if you’re ready or not, I’m leaving!

Oh, I think I just translated that into English:

In Spanish we literally say that we care a cucumber if we don’t care at all about something.

Do you know any other ways to say you don’t care in Spanish?

We also use the phrases @SKrausser mentioned. Another equivalent could be “vale huevo” (costs egg?). Which meaning might be something like “it doesn’t matter”. For example, “me vale huevo que no estés listo, me voy.”
But, I think there is another expression with egg that is totally opposed “valer un huevo”.
We also say other things that are not so polite with “me importa un…”:point_right:t5::point_left:t5:

In Mexican Spanish there are many ways to say this, but the one I hear most is quite vulgar… “Me vale v****” :speak_no_evil: :scream:

I’ve heard some people shorten this to a non-vulgar version, and they just say: “Me vale.”
