Hmmm, I thought USB C was  made to work no matter which way you plug it in.  I'm finding that no matter which cable I use, it only works 1 way Even the charger that came with my note 20, only charges one way. what's going on

That is right, both sides have to work , @Cyberwasp if your connector work in only one side , you have one side with the pins damaged.

C type port in any direction is a bit of a misnomer; "some" people were damaging their ports in older types by putting them in backwards. So the c type was designed to allow free access either direction without damage, but the leads are still on only 1side

"...but the leads are still on only 1side"

This is completely wrong.

A proper USB C cable has connections on both sides of the connector.
