What Does IDEC Mean in a Text?

IDEC means "I Don't Even Care."

The abbreviation IDEC is used with the meaning "I Don't Even Care" to indicate that the sender has no opinion or interest in a subject. For example:
  • Sam: Shall I have tea or coffee this morning?
  • Ali: IDEC what you make, just hurry up.
  • Lee: You are so ugly, when you looked in the mirror your reflection walked away.
  • Jo: Dick head. IDEC what you think.
IDEC is often used to indicate a genuine lack of interest, but is also used when the sender is interested, but doesn't want to admit it (especially in matters concerning relationships). For example, "IDEC that my ex is now dating my best friend." could mean that the sender genuinely is not interested in the activities of their ex and their best friend, or that they are very deeply hurt and don't want to admit it. Care should always be taken to assess the true meaning.

When used in a truly dismissive way, IDEC is similar to DILLIGAF (Do I Look Like I Give A F*ck), but is far less abrupt.
