I've done some research, and I believe it means the person cares SO little that the last droplets of care spirit are being sucked out of their body, through their arms, and out of the tips of their fingers, and into the outer reaches of interstellar space to be lost forever. A true indicator that person doesn't give a FLUFF.
 

Arm fluttering is a common gesture used in BFDI. It is usually used by a character to express extreme excitement, panic, or anger.

The gesture went unnamed until "Getting Teardrop to Talk", when Lollipop first coined the term. However, Pillow's research concludes that the gesture is a way of showing extreme disinterest in a topic. She claims that it allows one's "care spirit" to be sucked out of their body, though their fingers, and into Space. This is obviously not true, of course.

Notable coverage

In "Getting Teardrop to Talk", Pen and Eraser flutters their arms when they see how the pentagon is scary. Teardrop flutters her arms when she is interested in Eggy's story. She also did the gesture (off-screen) when Lollipop tried to sell her Fork Repellent, which she probably wanted considering she was stabbed with a fork earlier in the episode. Coiny does the gesture when he begs Four to bring back Pin after he disfigures her. Barf Bag also did the gesture when she got mad at Lollipop and Pillow for undermining her, and Firey also did it when talking to Loser.
