Directionally challenged

Beyond perplexed and heading toward self-deprecation.
Written instructions are often in the same league for me as multiple-choice test questions.  Apparently, I'm quite gifted at reading more into the text provided, or, as some would say, reading between the lines.  Give me an essay question, though, and I'm all over it-- let me at it!

The Good to Go transponders truly perplex me.  Shouldn't the sticker face the electronic device that will scan it?  Why on earth does the bar code face me?

Whatever.  

No wonder I tread with great care when giving test-taking directions to students.  After all, who wants to scrape a self-defeated student off the floor?
