Does anyone else find department store sales assistants to be kind of rude sometimes? What do you do when this happens?

The other day, I took my husband to Macy’s makeup section to look at a good moisturizer with SPF for his face. I thought it would be a good idea because there would be so many products to choose from. He looked at the Clinique products and didn’t like the texture or something, so I took him to Prescriptives. I could see the Clinique lady scowling at me from across the store, like I did something wrong.

Do you all find that you have to go to the Lancome counter at one department store, the Clinique counter at a different department store, etc. I wouldn’t mention it except that this has happened to me sooo many times. Obviously, I don’t have brand loyalty, but I thought that was common! Any thoughts?
