Sister Julienne certainly didn't report it to the Mother House and sent Trixie to AA and discreetly never directly mentions Trixie's problem lest anyone *really* find out because Trixie WOULD be fired. Now Nancy was foolish beyond belief to mention the child to others, but its kind of crummy that Sister Julienne will cover things up for Trixie but not Nancy because when it's Nancy its suddenly wrong to lie and keep secrets about moral failings. Exactly. What bugged me was not that Trixie was an alcoholic, but that she was drunk on the job, and endangered people. As you said, everyone who knew covered that up big time, saying she was "feeling unwell, " including Sr Julienne. It's one of the reasons I dislike Trixie. After the second time she was passed out on the job, she was crying to Sr Julienne about it was because she was so upset that she and her boyfriend had broken up, again it was all about her, which I think is a moral failing, and Sr Julienne let it go, again. Totally crummy! Link to comment
