Match Etiquette - What do you do when your squad partner talks while you're shooting?

Over the past years that I've shot FT, I've heard quite a few stories of folks competing at local, state, regional and even national FT Matches where people were squadded with a shooter that would get really chatty with them as they were in the lane taking their shots.

I've only experienced this on a couple occasions and the chatter was definitely with the intent to break my concentration but not at a level that I couldn't ignore it.

What is the proper method of handling this situation where the squad partner is purposely being a pain in the arse with their chatting in a major match that you are shooting in if they don't respect your requests to quiet down when you are in the lane taking your shots?

Do you tell the MD and have them talk to them or get reassigned a new partner? Can a MD reassign partners once the match has started or are you stuck riding out the rest of the match stuck with some jerk?
