I heard one of the funniest stories I've heard in years today. we had lunch with some old high school friends of my wife, from Colombia. one of them served in the Colombian army, rich kids don't serve in the army, they find a way out, so I asked him why he served.
so, his parents made arrangements for him to stay out of the army, like all the other rich kids in his school. he started university. he gets a call from the army, telling him that he should come to pick up his exemption document. he goes to the office they tell him to, he actually goes with a few friends in the car, on the way to a bar. he figures he'll pop in and get the document and go.
he goes in to the office, and there are 3 other people in line. the first guy in line says "they called me and told me to come get my exemption" and the sergeant says "hey, that's great, unfortunately we ran out of exemptions" and an MP comes and pulls him off and throws him in a bus. this guy turns and tries to run and they grab him, too, and throw him on the bus. it turns out that he had the exemption, but the recruiters came up short and had to scrape up a half a dozen soldiers. he ended up serving a year. I thought it was hilarious.
