We all dread the call for jury duty. So much so that we come up with any excuse in the book to not affect our weekly grind. But did you ever think that just being a parent would get you out of the unwanted task? It worked for Neil Patrick Harris’ fiance David Burtka!

Burtka took to his twitter account to celebrate the happy news as he weaseled his way out of jury duty. He said to his fans, “Ugh! I got called in for Jury duty today. What do I do if I can’t make it next week?” A few moments later, he added, “I got out!! I said I was a stay at home dad! Which is true!! Yaaaaahooooo!”

Seeing as though Burtka is an actual stay at home dad, he didn’t lie to get out of this governmental duty. But it’s nice to know that when the time comes, taking care of your kids is a legit reason not to report for duty!

What do you think? Have you ever gotten out of jury duty for the same reason? Tell us about it!
