04 Honda Civic LX Sedan Battery Replacement (51R-DLG)?

Explaination:

So the other day my bettery died, blah blah details. I got a jump and then I went to Auto Zone to get a new battery. I wound up getting a Duralast Yellow Top 51R-DLG battery. When I put the new battery in my car the positive and negative terminals seemed to be on the wrong side of the battery. Yes everything was installed correctly for my car. Needless to say I couldn't close my hood because the battery terminals were too close to the edge of the engine compartment and I couldn't put my hood strut down all of the way because the positive terminal was preventing this.

Now for the real question:

Is there any sort of "reverse terminal" battery or do I just have to get a different model battery? If I don't have to do either, is there any sort of quick fix so I don't have to deal with the hastle of trying to explain this to the auto zone employees?

    I did this same thing a week ago

    AutoZone took it right back I didn't install mine in the car though. I took it right back when I saw the terminals were backwards.

    Take it back. They''l give you a new one.
