Default Forward Binding Facing Nose - ok?

I have been boarding for a while, consider somewhat early intermediate and need some guidance from experts here. I recently bought a used custom burton board and new bindings/boots from a local ski shop and hit the slopes this past weekend. Everything looks fine so far. However, it appears that they may have put the bindings the other way - seems front binding (I am goofy so my right foot binding) is facing the board's tail instead of the nose. I see that the stomp/anti-slip pad is in the inside of my front binding instead of inside of my rear binding. Needless to say had a hard time getting off the lifts.

My question - Did the guy at the ski shop missed it or is this normal? I felt little odd going down the slopes with tail facing forward, but didn't feel anything seriously wrong. I see everyone switching so that should be normal (I just don't feel comfortable with my left foot forward!)

Should I move the bindings so they face the nose? I thought I need to do that at least to get my stomp pad at right place! I hope I can do this myself. Is the two bindings interchangeable or the front always stays front?

Thanks much for your advise!

by the sound of it the bindings were set up 15/-15 which is why you didn't have a problem with the angles. but yes, by the sounds of it the boards set up for someone who's goofy. personally i would switch around the bindings because having them the wrong way would bother me to the point of losing sleep over it.
