  •  Vocab side issue... Uninterested vs Disinterested (4+ / 0-)

    It is probably too late... Disinterested used to mean neutral... did not favor one side or another say in a financial dispute.. they did not have interests, an iron in the fire of either party in the dispute. Mediators and referees are disinterested... or should be...

    While Uninterested means not engaged with... finds something of no interest to them... could care less...
