I was playing ladies doubles. Our ratings seemed to span from a 3.0 to a 4.0. I was the least experienced player. I wound up with the person who seemed slightly better and against the two strongest players. I suggested we mix up the teams to even the playing field. In doing so, I inadvertently insulted my original partner who was offended by my suggestion. Should I have kept my mouth shut and play with the weaker player at the risk of getting trounced?
