Another view of this can be to use Nautical terms. The same issue was common among ship mates that is why they orient the vessle by first identifying front and rear as fore and aft. Then they go to Port and Starbord where Port is the left side when facing forward on board the ship and obviously Starbord is right when facing the same way.

And then, if you are British, and cruising to New York and back, you can pay a premium to get a sunny-side stateroom on both legs of the voyage (Port Over, Starboard Home) - hence the term "posh." And we now return you to your regular programming..... Greg Parker in semi-posh Ann Arbor, Michigan
