Does anyone have a convincing story about why exponentiation isn't commutative?

Like, what happens here:
a + b: repeat "add 1" b times
a × b: repeat "add a" b times
a^b: repeat "times a" b times

In reply to @christianp

are there other sequences of operations built by repeating the previous one that are all commutative?
