You did NOT read it correctly.
In life the manner in which people treat others has an effect on how others feel about them. Act the way you like. You are always welcome. A smile is better than a scowl. Laughter better than a sneer.
Treat others well and they will WANT to help you. Treat them poorly and they MAY still help you but you could have done better for both yourself and them.
You should have gone into the store and spoken to him IMHO.
