Glovebox Locks Self?

My glovebox locks it self automatically when ever I open it. So basically when I unlock it I open it as normal, but when it opens you can hear it lock itself and the lever will only close half way. And to open it again after I close it you need to put the key in, re-lock it and then unlock it again. Then the process starts over again. I noticed it right after I got the car, but it never really bothered me that much til now. Is this just a bad lock or is this how it was (over)designed?

My glovebox stays unlocked all the time. Never touch the lock except to open it for access.
Yours is not operating correctly.
