Social matches should be Squabble-Free Zones, so I just did what he wanted.
You could have simply taught him. It's a 20 second conversation. Really would not have been that hard to have the brief, this is how the pros teach poaching talk, and show him the hand signals. If he said no and still wanted to call audibles, I would simply have said no we can play it straight up no signals.
Social matches should also be Dumb-*** Free Zones.
