Things To Know Before You Do a 'Do' If this is your first do, have fun! I've been to several and have always found people with whom I could socialize. You'll be surrounded by people who share your mileage addiction and are sure to pick up a tip or three. A couple of things to keep in mind: -Do attendees will share your frequent flyer interests, but little else. For the most part, you'll all have about as much in common as you'd find were you to put yourself and the fifteen other people sharing your last F compartment at a random dining room table somewhere on earth. This simple fact is what makes attending a do simultaneously suck and be awesome. -There will be at least one person in attendance (there always is) who holds deeply repugnant views on something. They will of course insist on talking about it until they've upset a lot of people. -There will be at least one person in attendance (there always is) who cannot hold their liquor. They will embarrass you and eventually have to leave. -There will be at least one person in attendance (there always is) who is a freeloader. For the main dinner and other group events, be sure that all pay in advance, otherwise the host will be out several hundred dollars and you'll feel compelled to share the burden.
