    是辨明微細字母差異的意思。小寫p與q小孩容易搞混。P's and Q's (Mind Your P's and Q's)Means to learn one's letters. Dates back to the late 18th century. Some people think it refers to the hard time children had learning to distinguish between the letters p and q, since they are mirror images of one another. We received these emails from site visitors:P’s n Q’s: it actually means, Mind your Pints and Quarts. In Pubs when people would start arguing, the bartenders would tell them to mind their own drinks... being pints n quarts!I always thought that Mind your P's and Q's meant to behave appropriately. Also I thought it meant that if you don't mind your P's and Q's You are irresponsible Because if P's and Q's were referred to as Penny's and Quarters and nobody minded or paid attention to them and you lost them then you would have lost your Pennies and Quarters, or P's and Q's.The most convincing explanation of this idiom I've heard is that it comesfrom the early days of printing, when movable type was positioned forprinting. This process was done upside-down - a technique not impossible toget used to after some time. However, the lowercase letters p and q werehard to distinguish, since in most designs they were mirror images of eachother. Hence" mind your P's and Q's!", a phrase I was told was shouted atyoung children working in these print shops.I am under the impression that the saying minding your p's and q's, doesmean mind your pints and quarts. Bartenders would use tally marks i.e. 4pints equal a quart, if the customer got out of line, the bartender woulduse the phrase, mind your p's and q's. I have also heard the customer woulduse it when they thought they were being over charged..
