FRIENDS star Matthew Perry had sales assistants at a New York store fuming after he made them wait on him - and then failed to buy anything.

The actor spent 30 minutes getting advice from skin care specialists at BARNEYS department store, holding up other customers in the process.

An amused onlooker says, "He took an age to look at all these products with a queue of people waiting to be served.

"Then he walked off without buying a thing."
