n. - The scenario where one, with no other options, enters a public restroom having to take an urgent shit, but discovers that one or more stalls is/are quietly occupied by other people with the same idea.

In an effort to be polite or keep from embarrassing themselves, no one in the restroom wants to be the first to squeeze out a loud, booming fart or firebomb a lunker into the water below for everyone to hear, so what ensues is a shit standoff.
Ned: "Dude, where were you?"
