BTW, you're paying for that SA. Does that gall yer stones?
You may be interested to know that in most dealerships, the SA is a salesman in their most important profit center. They work on commission, so their incentive is to talk the sucker (oops, customer) into as much (unnecessary) work as they possibly can.
