do you like your greens dry–or–wet

Grocers are getting fancy nowadays.  Before this fancification began, your greens (kale, collards, radishes) were dry and dirty.  I liked them this way.  Now, many times, they have sprayers and sprinklers going.  The produce area is like a rain forest.  I have to pick up my selection and whip the water out of it.  Then I shove it in a bag, getting my hands & the buggy wet.  Usually I put them on the bottom shelf of the buggy.  It is probably the grubbiest area of the buggy, but I don’t want to get everything else wet.  Now I take it home and cook it within 24 hours or it starts to rot.  it is really gross.  I don’t go to the store every day & this can mean waste.  I understand they want their stuff to look fresh and glistening, but believe me, DRY & DIRTY is the most economical.  Think about it.
