This isn't confirmed but...

Back in the olden days(?) drinks in pubs were served in pints and quarts. If someone was getting rowdy in the pub and a fight was on the cards, the barman would shout out, "Mind your pints and quarts" and that's where our saying "mind your p's and q's" when someone swears comes from.



Could be true, could be b****** :)
