That is fine, I expect that. It's not the best of situations but hey, sometimes its good because as people know, some salespeople will not leave customers alone because they want to make a sale. The problems arises when a salesperson creates attention toward my young looking appearance.
I go to the bookstore a lot. I do not have a favorite one so I tend to not be recognized by the staff. I prefer horror stories over anything else and to me old school horror writing is the best i.e. Franz Kafka and H.P Lovecraft. One day I went into a bookstore and this exchange happened.
*Looking around at books, finds a Franz Kafka short story collection*
*Begins to read it and salesperson walks up to me*
*Salesperson grabs the book from me and holds it away from me*
SP: Aren't we a little too young to be reading this?
M: Excuse me? Absolutely not. Please give me back the book.
SP: If you want the book I am going to have to see your parents. This book is not meant for young children.
M: I'm twenty, I think I am old enough to be reading anything I want thank you.
SP: I need to see your parents.
M: And I need to see your manager.
So, long story short, the manager was very sorry about the whole thing, the salesperson continued to be an ass the whole entire time because he kept saying, "We really should check with her parents.", and I left feeling just a little sad because this tends to happen frequently.
