Father Blames Bruce Springsteen for Daughter's Tardiness
Patrick A. Papino deserves credit, not only for taking his daughter Isabelle to see The Boss, but for writing a letter to explain why the girl was late to school the next day.
According to Albany's Times Union, Papino wrote: 'Please excuse Isabelle's tardiness to school today. In the interest of honesty, I feel it my obligation to be straight with all of you as to the reason."
He explained, 'Last night Isabelle was lucky enough to see Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band in Albany, and darned if he didn't play for three and a half hours. 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." Read Patrick A.
