new guy needs some basic rules advice
ive just returned to the game after 20 years. ive played twice now.
my pal pulled me up regarding my service. he said i had to wait untill he stood with his racket pointing up.
when he served to me everytime i had my hands low, thats my style. i dont complain.

I think you may've just served before he was ready. Wait for him to be looking at you before you serve, in his ready position.
If he attempts to hit the shuttle when you serve then you have served fine. If he complains he wasn't ready then he shouldn't have attempted to hit your serve

The rules do state that you don't serve until the receiver is ready but it also states that if he makes an attempt to return the serve then he was deemed ready.
Do as Chris says and tell him to have his non racket hand up until he IS ready.

He also said that when serving in singles you play to the rear line. I thought it was the front line of the two.
Is he correct?

In sgls, rear line is the last line. I think he is correct.
