(one) can't be arsed

(one) can't be arsed

rude slang One is unwilling or disinclined to make the effort necessary (to do or accomplish something). Primarily heard in UK. I couldn't be arsed to clean all those dishes after dinner, so I just left them in the sink until the morning. Apparently, my kids can't be arsed to put their clothes into the hamper like they're supposed to.
