Default 4 left tyres?

Got new summer Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance tyres online. Had them mounted on the rims. Now I've noticed that the tyres have and inside & outside, no big deal, the guy mounted them correctly on the rims, but the thread is exactly the same on all 4 tyres.

So that means if I mount them on my car and look and the tyres from behind let's say, the grooves on the outer edges of the tyres will be smiling at me on the left side of the car and making a sad mouth on the right hand side. Is this normal?

There is no direction stated on the tyres, just a little picture of a car which I thought might show the direction, but if it does all 4 should rotate anti-clockwise. Ordered Falken's for my parents car at the same time, and it's the same story, no rotation indication, but grooves will make a smile on one side and a sad face on the other... I'm confused.

asymmetrical tyres... it doesn't matter what way they turn, sounds weird but apparently I don't have to worry about it :-)
