Product Management and market problems

Lunch conversation excerpt:
me: woah.... that is un-freaking believable.
A: You think as a product manager you have an idea of what a product/market problem looks like and then you hear about something like this.
C: Yup it is absolutely true. The chair manufacturers are dealing with this specific problem in casinos.

(C used to be a product manager for a company whose target market is casinos)

So what is the problem -> It turns out that "customers" tend to get so into the games they are playing that they often refuse to get up to use the restrooms. Thus casinos are constantly finding themselves with soiled chairs at the end of the day.

Hrmm I wonder if these customers are wondering if they have a teeny-weeny addiction problem.
