I'm assuming that this implies that your boss has more interest in golf than his job?

  That was a line from "A Bridge Too Far" (1977); Colonel Frost (played by Anthony Hopkins) preparing for the jump into Arnhem. He also told his batman to pack his dinner jacket. Frost was as optimistic as Monty, who came up with the plan. I consider it a very fine film with a great cast, and plenty of operational WW2 Allied vehicle eye candy.
