    if you give a damn then it is important to you

    "Look at my awesome new shoes!"
    "I don't give a damn."

    The phrase "to give a damn" means showing interest or concern...actually this phrase is always used in the negative.

    example: He doesn't give a damn about his occupation. (He has no interest in his occupation.).
