如果你告诉别人你 don't give a monkey's about something，意思就是你对某事一点都不在乎，完全无所谓。
- I don't give a monkey's if my ex-boyfriend is getting married or not.
- It's all about the money for Caroline. She doesn't give a monkey's about the work itself.
值得注意的是，如果某人参与的事被形容为 monkey business, 这就是说他的表现和行为非常愚蠢或幼稚。这个短语也能用来表达令人难以接受甚至是带欺骗性质的表现。
- Two policemen showed up at my neighbour's doorstep this morning. I've always suspected there's been some monkey business going on in the house.
