Feels Like I'm Fixin To Die...

We bought three of these chests for my daughters bedroom, from Tesco Direct. they are made from real wood, not chipboard or MDF, have plywood drawer bottoms and chest backs, instead of card/hardboard ones, overall they sounded good. Normally I'm not a fan of self assembly furniture, but this actually sounded OK. They arrived on Tuesday, I started assembly this afternoon. The chest frame was OK and looked nice assembled, however the drawers...

For some reason the geniuses behind designing the drawers believed that glue was enough to hold the drawer fronts together, no screws, none of the usual self assembly internal bolts - unbelievable! So after three months, they would become scrap, great if you sell this stuff, bad if you use it!

Phoning Tesco direct, they are collecting all 3, refunding me in full including delivery, so I suppose I can't complain too much, I'm still out of pocket 2 hours of my life and my daughter has no furniture atm though :(
