Last night was the yearly Christmas Party, most got a bit plastered as we all needed a good blow out after a hard year, but what about the ones that didnt, if you are stone cold sober and watch your workmates staggering around, slurring there words and making fools out of themselves do you hold it against them? or just move on and accept it as everyones right to have a good blow out now and then?

No, you don't hold it against them. You just make fun of them for at least a week or too afterwards.lol. As long as no one is driving home after drinking, I think it is ok. You got to have a little fun every now and then. I'm usually the one who stays sober and most of the time its very entertaining. I don't hold it against them at all.

Thanks for that, as you might have guessed I am one of the ones that got a bit plastered, so that makes me feel a bit better.

I have never put myself in this aituation, as I believe it is inappropriate to get drunk at a work related party.
