no apostropheEdit

The expression is "mind your Ps and Qs" or mind one's Ps and Qs". There is no need for the apostrophe on either the P or the Q. MrMarmite (talk) 12:01, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

It's pretty common to use apostrophes to avoid ambiguity, for example a's would become as. For example for ps, there's a tendency to pronounce it as /piː.ɛs/ instead of /piːz/. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:06, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
