History

What does p.s. and q. stand for?


1 Answer

If you mean P's and Q's it means "mind your manners" but it originates from setting printer type which was done one letter at a time and the lower case P's and Q's were often confused because typefaces were reverse images. Loosely it means pay attention to what you are doing or saying.
