Founded January 1, 2020, The Year 2020 started with great expectations. However, the company quickly took a turn for the worse in the spring as it reeled from global public health and economic crises. 

Preparing to quarantine, customers across the world panic shopped until there was no toilet paper, disinfectant, or canned soup to be found. Then, The Year 2020 created all sorts of civil and political unrest.

Confronted with a terrible customer experience and limited company support, customers showed strength, resilience, and compassion. Some customers found silver linings or experienced personal growth.

Even though some things divided customers, they can agree on one thing: no one would have ever guessed The Year 2020's ill-fated future. 

With such a rough first year in business, Best Company cannot recommend The Year 2020 to potential customers.

The year 2020 is not recommended for those who find comfort in planning, working hard and reaching dreams. It is more satisfying for those who tend to procrastinate and say; "let's not make any plans and just see where the day/week/future takes us." They are the ones who were not disappointed. Those who continued to plan got lots of opportunities to revise, alter or cancel expectations. Many in denial would move on to plan B, C, D, E...etc, just to feel like they still had some control. I felt bad for those who thought they could sneak in a planned vacation or adventure only to end up stacking up credits or begging for refunds on airlines, hotels other vacation packages. To the optimistic it was the ultimate mirage of hope that appeared so close but never could arrive. Like a child in the back seat of the car on a long journey i kept asking, "how much longer?" and "Are we there yet?" Only to be answered that "we don't know and NOPE!" But it wasn't just about lost dreams and expectations. 2020 gave us the ultimate game of "To Tell the Truth". This popular tv game show from the 1970s was played out in real time with each citizen being the contestant who was presented with an unlimited number of celebrity panelists, (scientists, leaders and experts) all declaring that they were telling the truth. Revised rules allowed the panelists to continually change their mind and present conflicting data. Not sure if the game will ever end and the panelist who is really telling the truth will get to stand up.

Reflecting back, the year started off with brushfires raging across Australia, burning 18.6M acres and killing 1B animals. Then a US drone hit Baghdad International Airport and took down Iranian Major General, with war breathing over our shoulder. The horrific sudden death of Basketball legend Kobe Bryant, airplane crashes in Iran and Pakistan, The Tokyo Summer Olympics were postponed, U.S. Birth Rates Drop, the death of Eddie Van Halen, the Dow fell a sharp 2,997 points on March 16th amid mounting fears surrounding the coronavirus. Our President was impeached, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle quit the Royal family, social unrest over the killing of George Floyd, the First Commercial Rocket to Orbit Space, the deadly explosion in Beirut, wild fires raged through California and the west coast, the world as we knew it closed and we were told to stay home, March Madness aka the NCAA College Basketball Tournament was cancelled, after leading the first 3 ½ quarters, the 49ers lost the Superbowl in the last 6 minutes, Movie Theatres became bankrupt, Live performances are on life support, when sports resumed fans were not allowed in the stadiums, unemployment hit staggering levels of 23.1M American’s out of work Unemployment rose higher in three months of COVID-19 than it did in two years of the Great Recession. 2020 was a year to forget.

2020 was the year that just kept giving! Of course absolutely NO ONE wanted anything this year gave them! It’s not that we’re an ungrateful generation but it’s kind of hard to celebrate and be thankful for death, plagues and oh let’s not forget the murder hornets. All in all, 2020 was one of the worst years on record for almost everyone. I give 2020 NO STARS! The only way this year could be worse is if 2021 comes in telling it “Here Dad....hold my beer!”

2020 was not the year I paid for. I requested a return but was denied again and again. The warning label for 2020 is grossly insufficient. If I could sue 2020, I would but there are no lawyers powerful enough to take on 2020. If I could rate 2020 zero stars I would, but this thing starts at one star. I could go on and on about 2020, but I won’t give 2020 the satisfaction. So long 2020. I will never consider your service again.

Unfortunately my daughters father was killed in July by his wife so I still have a grieving adult child and my mother who is in the nursing home tested positive for Covid19 last week but thankfully only mild symptoms. The worst is I haven’t seen my mom physically in person since March...I really want to hug my mom💔

I was not a big fan of The Year 2020 because it prevented me from hugging my grandchildren and being part of their lives. The Year 2020 forced me to adapt to alternate methods of communication including Zoom, Skype and FaceTime. Hopefully, I will be on this earth long enough to wave goodbye to The Year 2020 and sign on to The Year 2021.

This has been an absolutely unacceptable year and should be recalled. I mean, a virus is one thing, but one that closes down countries? Ridiculous. And then a questionable election and riots? Who dreamed this up? They should be fired.
