NW messaging gone wild

This morning at 6:00 a.m. in my hotel room, me fast asleep after a night of tossing and turning. My cell phone (turned on for alarm clock purposes) rings and startles me awake. I assume it's the alarm. It's not. It's Northwest with a recorded message. The message is that I am being notified that my first class upgrade has not cleared (for my 3:10 p.m. flight), and further, the upgrade wait list is full and I will not be waitlisted for an upgrade. That's certainly the kind of news I want to be awakened at 6:00 a.m. for. Oh, here's the kicker: The flight is on a CRJ with NO first class section. Bottom line, I am awakened by Northwest at 6:00 a.m. to be told I will not be upgraded to first class on a flight without a first class section. And no, I didn't get back to sleep.
