"I can't be bothered to do something" = I don't want to make the effort to do something, maybe because I don't have the energy or am feeling too lazy. e.g. I can't be bothered to go to work today.

  • Since the beginning of January, our Christmas tree has been sitting outside. I need to take it to the tipA place to dispose of your household rubbish but I can't be bothered. Is there anything that you're too lazy to do, or that you don't want to do because it is too much effort?

I love cooking fermented food. At the moment, I have to prepare chukrut, I know I should do it as soon as possible. I can’t be bothered though. Perhaps I’ll do it tomorrow.
Preparing this fermented food does take a long time and effort, it’s worth the effort though.
