Next time that happens to anyone, I suggest telling management what happened, but do not identify who it was that had the problem; that way you can ask if they need anyone knowledgeable in the department and perhaps you can get a gig that way.
Sometimes it is little bits of key information that provide you the upside in a negotiation.
If you are just trying to help the guy, then just help the guy. If he is supposed to be an expert in the area you are browsing, and cannot operate the equipment they are selling, then I would report that to management and see if they will give you a gift certificate or somesing likes thats.

I was at a local BB store last night killing some time so I decided to look at the Nikon D300. I had to put the lens on, due to incompetence of the sales associate. He knew nothing of the features and when I gave back the camera he was trying with all his might to twist the lens off without pushing the lens release button. I was laughing histerically under my breath and furious all at the same time. because I applied there for a job some time ago and never got called. I figure maybe I was too over qualified??? Anyone else have to deal with this kind of nonsense at a BB store?
