This term is used for when you are in public restroom and you are trying to go #2 and another person enters the stall next to you. You wait for that person to leave so they cannot hear your poop noises. If that person has to poop as well you may be caught in a poop stand-off.
Christine:"Where have you been? You've been gone for more than 30 minutes?"

a poop standoff is when 2 people go into a public bathroom with more than one stall to poop. both people try waiting until the other person leaves so they can poop in private. that is a poop standoff.
julie went into her work bathroom to poop, but as soon as she got in there, another co-worker came in. she then became involved in a poop standoff, while she tried to outwait the other person.

When you and another person, perhaps even two other people, are in adjacent stalls in a public restroom, all waiting for the others to leave to unleash your noisy shits. It becomes a battle of wills to see who will hold in their unholy excretion the longest, and it is very accurately called a Poop Standoff.
