Yes, indeed. I'd expect `<something>.abs` to return a positive value.

```ruby
 1.abs #=> 1
-1.abs #=> 1

i = 1

 i.abs #=> 1
-i.abs #=> -1  <- not what I'd expect
```

Feature #15606: Precedence of -@ and +@

`-@` and `+@` seem to have issues with method chaining:

```ruby
i = 5

-i.negative?
# NoMethodError (undefined method `-@' for false:FalseClass)
```

here's another example:

```ruby
# frozen_string_literal: true

+'foo'.upcase!
# FrozenError (can't modify frozen String)
```

I know that I can fix this by adding parentheses, i.e. `(-i).negative?` and `(+'foo').upcase!` but it feels cumbersome.

Shouldn't the above work out of the box?

Unless I'm missing a crucial use case, the precedence for `-@` and `+@` should be changed.
