Maybe I'm wrong then....... I could have sworn she complained about this (She used to be in construction and a site foreman), and I know our Garbage disposal I press the bottom to turn it on and I am about 99% sure that when installing the switch I made sure the side marked "top" was on top.

That said, you are right. Everything I've read says that pressing the top turns on a standard decora switch. It always made sense to me, but I kinda just assumed she knew what she was talking about and our garbage disposal switch kinda confirmed that for me.
