Mine ran toward me. The sharpening is more important than water inconvenience.

Generally toward me, but on a Jet or Tormek, you can mount the tool rest on either side.  Most demos show the rotation toward the chisel or blade.  I gotta ask how fast your wheel is spinning.  Wet grinders are usually 90 rpm (Tormek) or maybe up to 150 rpm (Jet).  If you're rotating very quickly, I could see why you are slinging water all over the place.

The wheel is supposed to turn away from you and towards the top.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.
