When we want to say we don’t care about something there’s a lot of expressions we can use in slang Spanish.
Most of them start with “Me importa …..”. While “me importa” means literally “I care for….”, in this case it means exactly the opposite, “I don’t care….”
Me importa un pimiento (pepper)
Me importa un bledo (plant with very small flowers)
Me importa una mierda (I don’t give a shit)
Me importa un rábano (radish)
All these expressions can be used on their own, or followed by whatever we don’t care about: “Me importa un pimiento lo que digas”, “Me importa un bledo que se enfade”
