Mexican Standoff

Is Mexican standoff considered a culturally offensive term, or a compliment to the Mexican people?  Since I pride myself on being a stubborn person from the Show Me State, I'm going to assume the latter.

Anyway, the worst thing about being in a Mexican standoff is when the person you're in the standoff with doesn't know you're in a standoff.  This happens to me all the time.

Right now, I'm in a Mexican standoff with this guy (it's always this guy):

 About this book of matches and crock pot:
They've been sitting there a week now, but I will prevail!

Are you making that greek cheese dish where they set it on fire???

Or re-enacting some sort of caveman discovering fire ritual??

Wait, am I the only one who's never heard of a "Mexican stand off?" Is this a Columbia thing? ;)

Maggie - the 2 items are unrelated. But those are great ideas. : )

Ann - it's not a Columbia thing. Now I bet it's now gonna be one of those phrases that you randomly hear 4 times in one week after never having heard of it before.
