At 3.5, nine out of ten times they will say yes they are sure, rather than use the opportunity to do the right thing and fess up and say, "You know what, I think I blew the call, your point, sorry, I apologize, the peepers aren't what they used to be".
Yeah, I agree with what you are saying here and you are right about the way I choose to handle things. I like to avoid potential arguments because you never know who you are going to get in a tennis match. I am not that good at picking out the whackos who could pop a fuse at any moment. Good point!
