Faucet handle faces the wrong direction.

Ok, leaky faucet time.
A sink in my garage was leaking.
I replaced this part:

It's not leaking now, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to make that handle point in the right direction when replaced. It is the cold side. The gray collar with the black o ring rotates, but the white part that you can't change the direction of is the problem. The white part on the bottom that covers up the hole where the water comes in, if it is covering that hole, then the flat part of that stem lines up with the cold water handle on the wrong side of the handle. It will ONLY end up with the handle turned towards the left when it's OFF.
Any ideas? I feel totally stupid. I know it's operator error.
It is part:

All you need to do is take it back out and turn it around. that will rotate around just tinker with it until it is right.
