Intermittent Wiper Graphic on Backwards?

Dudes (and Dudettes)....

I've got a 2010 DC..The one thing wrong with it that I've noticed in 40k+ miles of butt-in-seat is the graphic on the wiper arm for itermittent settings appears to be on backwards....The graphic shows the widest (longest)duration between wipes on top, yet if you turn the selector to that, you get the shortest duration between wipes or the quickest intermittent wiping....Anyone else have/notice this? This is right up there with pondering the meaning of life so I don't really care where this thread goes...Have fun with it...

The longer the marks the cleaner the windshield.

OR... you can just consider it that the Japanese read right to left rather than left to right.

Sooo......up is down and down is up, aka short is long and long is short.

I go with the thought of turning it "down" slows the wiper time ... turning it "up" speeds up the wiper. I know that it is opposite my wife's Accord.

It's opposite of every other vehicle I've ever seen with intermittent wipers...

You can, for a little over $100 and 20 minutes of your time.

$255 shipped, 30 minutes without moving from the driver's seat, I installed both factory cruise and intermittent wipers in my '08 RC Base 2.7

I think of it this way: the longer marks indicate a longer time between the wipers running.

I had a '98 Corolla and it was set up the same way. To me it is counter-intuitive. If I turn the knob up I want my wipers to run faster.
