Lock In

If a cellphone company sells you a plan that locks you in for three years, they are politely warning you that you will most likely want out of the deal before then. When a military enlistment contract does the same thing, but in the fine print says you can never leave unless they no longer want you, they are guaranteeing you will want out so badly you will consider suicide-by-combat as an option to escape.
