Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen was used as an unlikely excuse by a US school kids’ Dad for their lateness to school.

Patrick.A Pipino took his daughters to watch The Boss play on Monday night’s (February 8) gig at Albany’s Times Union Center, with both girls aged 12 and 7 respectively.

When they were late for school, the girls’ father used the previous night’s concert as a reason for their lateness to school.

According to Consequence of Sound, in a letter posted to his Facebook page, Pipino told the school what had happened the night before “Last night Isabelle was lucky enough to see Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band in Albany,” he wrote, “and darned if he didn’t play for three and a half hours.”

Pipino went on to explain his reasoning for disrupting the girls’ timetable: “This may not seem like a good excuse, but have you ever wondered how many kids would be late – or miss school outright – if God were to suddenly appear? It’s something like that.”
