You probably remember at least one time in your life when you just couldn't even handle the thought of going to school, and you rushed downstairs and begged your mom or dad to write you an excuse to get out of it. They probably said no.

But one inventive Capital Region dad felt wholeheartedly that missing a day of school following Bruce Springsteen performing at the Times Union Center Monday night was worth it. And so he wrote a note.

Comparing seeing "The Boss" to seeing God himself, Patrick Pipino went the honest route and asked that his daughter, Isabelle's, school excuse her tardiness because she was up late on Monday night watching a performance by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

"And darned if he didn't play for three and a half hours," Pipino wrote in the note.

Check out the note below and tell us if you think seeing Bruce is a good enough excuse to be a little late for school.
