    You may have heard Homer Simpson using that, but it's not a standard greeting in English!

    Re: A help

    "TQ" means nothing. If you mean "Thank you", you need to write it in full. However, note that there is no need to thank people in advance or arrears. If you find a post helpful, click on the "Thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I honestly thought they were the poster's initials!
