I was about to say...

If I saw that I would actually have to laugh out loud, like I do whenever something has a double flat sign in front of it.

At the risk of sounding like a music theory elitist here, neither minor IV chords or double flats are "written to confuse". A minor IV is, for example, an F minor chord when you're in the key of C. I think you are confusing that with a flat IV. And double flats are totally necessary sometimes when you need to keep a note consistent with the key it's in.... every (major/minor) scale needs to have every note from C to C represented with some or no accidentals to really "make sense", which is why the G scale isn't written G A B C D E Gb G, for example ... and some keys need double flats or double sharps to make this work.

I know why they're written like they are, and you were right about my confusion of a minor IVth cord. It's just that double flats are surprising when they suddenly show up in a piece.

its wierd how a double flat just has two flats for a sign, but the double sharp is an x.
