I do not think your request was unreasonable, most potential fish store customers would not ask for this, so I don't buy the fouling the water story. Sorry, but enough of their tanks are overpopulated, which I think is the worse culprit as far as water quality is concerned.
I am not surprised that you don't want to go back to this store. If the fish looked in poor health and he did not want to demo that they are in fact active enough to go for food, then you have reasonable doubt as to the health of the fish.
