You can go back and talk to the Manager again (without too much anger if you can), maybe he doesn't realize how badly it got wet. Ask for a refund explaining that the service performed was actually detrimental to your vehicle (you are worried about long term damage (corrosion of electrical connections and smelly interior due excessive moisture in the car) and that the guy working on it only wanted you to leave and was not interested in removing the water. This won't help get rid of the moisture but it may make you feel better.
Thanks for the info, so there could be corrosion or long term issues?
