Yes, you should feel extremely guilty...you should be doing much more than just working out and laundry. Watch a movie, read a book...c'mon man, you're on the bench. Take advantage!

Is there a difference of being on the beach and on the bench? My take is that you are on the beach when you roll off a project that has given you a hard time and want to relax a bit. The bench when you really want to be out on a project but cant for som reason. What is you take? Are they just two words for the same thing

I'm kind of scared to answer truthfully as I am a very laid back manager that is not a micromanager so don't want them to think I'm too casual for this position. I also have done very little hiring.
