Handyman Failure #2

I do not know the right way to turn a screw or a bolt to tighten rather than loosen.  My instincts are wrong every time, and so even if someone else tells me which way to turn a particular bolt I will fail again as soon as I have cause to reorient myself.  Words like clockwise and counterclockwise have no meaning to me except in the context of an actual clock.
