You know those little things that annoy you, that you don’t want to admit to because they seem so petty? Nope, me neither. I moan about everything.

But even I think this one is trivial, and it shouldn’t make me this angry.

I’ve just realised that every time I use a piece of software that says “rotate left” and “rotate right” rather than “rotate clockwise” and “rotate anticlockwise” I become just a tiny bit more homicidal.

For heaven’s sake, people! When you rotate a document about its centre, it moves equally right as it does left! The words “left” and “right” have no business in rotations. Your terminology only makes sense if you don’t think about what you’re clicking.

Don’t make me draw diagrams. You won’t like me when I draw diagrams.
