...the new guy behind the counter who spent most of our interaction trying to convince me to call his boss and say good things about him.
Now that I think about it, I haven't seen him for a long time. I don't think he works there any longer.

...the tool at a well known shop who tried to steer me away from a CZ75 because it was "too new, and probably isn't proven reliable yet"
After I pointed out the original 75 (what I was looking to buy) was in fact designed in the 70's and is issued to police and military worldwide he gave me an incredulous look and said he believed I was thinking of another gun.
I left, bought the gun elsewhere, and sent the manager a letter with a copy of my sales receipt from his competitor.

I agree with the sales person thing. For some reason some of them think that if you ask to handle more than one handgun you're fooling with them. It's like, pick one already and get the heck out of my space. A few of these people ought to try the food service industry to get an idea of what repetitive requests can be like.

I've had the unfortunate luck to witness three acts of pure idiocy.
First, was when I was at (when it was there) Sports Shooters, in Madisonville, KY. This was a gun shop, with a great indoor range. It's sad to say that they closed down a few years back, as it was a great range. That said, I'm there one day, shooting my Smith & Wesson Model 29, when two teens show up, shooting an airgun. One walks up to me, pants half off of his *****, and asks me, "yo, mah, can I see yo gat?" I left it at, "uh, no, you're not of legal age to own one of these, and are probably not prepared for the recoil". He didn't believe me, so I said, "ok, I'll demonstrate this gun". I fired one round, and he jumped in shock. He changed his mind about shooting that gun.
Second was at Whittaker's Guns, in Owensboro, KY. Here, there were two boys, must've just turned 21, asking to look at a Desert Eagle. After being handed the pistol, the boy doesn't even check it. He just holds it sideways at his friend's face and says, "man, this'll be just like the Matrix!" I don't know what became of him, but if there's any justice in the world, chemical castration would've helped rid the world of any future rashes from that gene pool.
Finally, which doesn't even require comment, was seeing someone want to buy the "ceramic Glock 7".
Newest Purchase: Glock 17 Gen4

Speaking of stupid and Desert Eagles. At one of our local gun shops a young clerk was seriously telling a customer that the Isreali military carry .44 mag Desert Eagles as their normal weapon.
