When stores are unable or unwilling to demo what I want to see, I become unwilling to pull out my credit card.
I usually thank the sales person for their help and let them know that I'll need to find a vendor that can meet my demo needs before I'd consider buying. For the acne faced kid, this just goes over their head, for others that are just lazy slackers, it tends to get their attention.
Asking for someone that can "help" often gets a frustrated sales droid to turn you over to his or her manager. They are often more flexible as they are working towards some sales goal or quota.
