Does it annoy you when shop assistants are trying to sell you something you don't need?

Yes, even if they are trying to persuade me to buy something l needn't I will tell them directly l won't buy. I guess it's a waste of time for those shop assistants because I'm not the target customer. Does it annoy you when shop assistants are trying to sell you something you don't need?

@RodrickH thanks. Don't you feel good of doing something positive than negative? Surely we don't want to be treated rudely. Just follow the golden rule... do unto others do unto you. We're not a saint though. But we can always try to be nice.
No it does not annoy me especially if it's a pretty shop assistant. Seriously I look at it in a positive way, I might learn something, might not need it now but maybe later. I also think of those young people, what if they were my children just trying to make a little money? I think it's also a good reflection on you, they get the impression that you are somebody with money to spend.

Thankfully that doesn't happen in most stores here. The only place I've experience that so far is the wholesale club where we shop every few months. They're always trying to pitch roof or windows installation. Sales assistants can be very aggressive sometimes. They should know customers aren't going to buy if they feel like they're being threatened . The also need to learn the difference between persistence and begging
