It’s a scenes that every household in Ireland could relate to this morning - trying to juggle school, job and family life while refreshing your four/five devices for those all important Bruce Springsteen tickets.
Not to imagine the chaos that will occur when the day of the concert finally arrives.
Well, one American father has it down and he's not sugar-coating it.
Patrick Pipino penned this hilariously honest letter to his 12-year-old’s teacher explaining that she was late for school as she was up late last night at a Bruce Springsteen concert.
Simple as that.
"In the interest of honesty, I feel it my obligation to be straight with all of you as to the reason," the dad wrote.
"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."
Now, as a responsible parent he did go on to say that it “may not seem like a good excuse” but the scenario was similar to if God suddenly appeared: “Well, something like that”.
We can imagine plenty of letters like this could have been exchanged around the nation today.
