Default "The Upgrade Fairy!"

I read this on one of the Bulletin Boards on AOL, and I just had to post it here. Someone has finally found out the DARK secrets of the infamous "UPGRADE!"
Take Care!
************************************************** ****************
The reservations department of any cruise line is a large, comfortable office filled with hundreds of earnest young people equipped with powerful computers, whose sole duty is to mess with reservations and make TAs pull their hair out. However, over in the corner is one rickety old desk equipped with an obselete 286 computer with 4 meg of RAM and a 14.4 modem, which belongs to an elderly female employee who is usually out on sick leave. On those rare days when she does come in to the office, ccasionally she lays her knitting down on the keyboard and it hits the proper key to do something nice ... even something wonderful ... to some particular reservation. She is known as the Upgrade Fairy and no living human being has any idea how her slow old computer happens to pick any particular reservation.

If she smiles on you, thank your lucky stars and accept gratefully. And if she does not, then be satisfied that you got a good deal on your guaranteed category and have a GREAT cruise!
