Irritating salesmen

Aishwarya's latest post hits the nail on the head; I can't bear it when irritating salesmen pester me while I am trying to decide what to buy - be it books, clothes or gifts. The only place where I find suggestions to be acceptable is while at a restaurant, and that too, only if it is unintrusive. When I was working in Chennai, I used to really haunt Shopper's Stop and the Landmark store at Spencers' - they had knowledgable salesmen (strange how they managed it - I believe many of their employees are college students working part-time), who would never pester you; you could practically remain there the whole day long :).
