If a store treats you bad, take your business elsewhere. That's what I would do. When he asked about the magazines I would have said "I'm sorry" and sat them on the counter and walked out. Companies'll be happy to send you all that stuff. When you go by there in the future, just smile to yourself and keep moving on past. Deny them your patronage. It's a pretty good feeling.
