Preliminary Note

The […] story has really happened something like that in a German company. Markus Schlotterbek told it to me. But he only foreshadowed something. Perhaps he feared to spill the beans about his collegues’ private life or about company secrets. I had to fill those gaps with my own imagination. However Markus has assured me that I got it right.

I went along with his wishes and changed all names. Even more to the point: Chris wished to rename the Bavarian mountains and localities. She said, too much books have already inspired tourists to overcrowd beautiful spots in the country.
