Some people have excuses for their boss. Others get excuses from The Boss

(SOUNDBITE OF BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN SONG, "BADLANDS")

MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. Some people have excuses for their boss, but some lucky people get excuses from the Boss. We're talking about a young fan who attended a Bruce Springsteen concert in San Francisco recently, who asked the legend to autograph a sign she put together that read, skipping school - sign my note? She had a good reason to ask. Springsteen shows sometimes run three hours, which can be tough on a school night. Luckily, Springsteen saw the note and signed. Hopefully she got extra credit for chutzpah.
