    Default Stroing thai basil (store bought)

    http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/305443
    The first one says, OUT of the fridge after trying paper towel method
    in fridge

    Another one says, probbaly for really fresh ones, "I cut these tops
    off before flowering and put them in water right away. I use a shallow
    Tupperware bottom and a cooling rack to keep the leaves out of the
    water which I change every other day. These have been in water for 5
    days.

    I bought mine at Asian store on Friday. Was going to use yesterday
    but didn;t get to and now I decided thta it'd be bet i I make that
    thai dish "lard" on Tuesday becus I have other food I need ot finish.
    Also, going out of town (1 day trip) tomorrow .

    Any suggestion?

    Never mind. I have decided to make this Thai dish called Larb in the
    morning (get everything ready at night) and take it with me. I think
    my basil will last till tomorrow. And mint (bought yesterday) should
    be OK.

    Do you read your posts before you hit send? I understand that English
    may not be your native language and that's fine--it explains some of
    your syntax and that's easy to overlook. But could you AT LEAST use
    spell check? Or read before you hit send, and correct the more blatant
    spelling errors? This is a WRITTEN medium. The blatant typos make you
    look ignorant, stupid and disrespectful of your audience. It says to a
    reader "Screw you, you're reading this, you figure out what I'm trying
    to say, I can't be bothered to make it clear."

    You have mentioned several times you are in grad school, so you
    couldn't be stupid. You're obviously educated. You have mentioned
    wanting to help your brother eat healthier, and buying him cooking
    tools to assist in that, so you seem to be a kind-hearted person who
    cares about others. Yet, the sheer volume of typos in your posts bely
    all of these positive attributes. It is frustrating to read your
    posts.

    Please use spell-check. Please make an effort to be clearly
    understood. All anyone here knows about you is how you present
    yourself on this newsgroup. Do you really want people to think you're
    stupid, ignorant and don't care about others?
