Well, "I am standing here for a long time already" sounds absolutely bizarre to native English ears! I've reported it but maybe "I've been standing here for a long time already" or "I've been stood here for a long time already."

Right. "I've been standing here for a long time (already)" makes sense, but "I've been stood here for a long time already" is bizarre English as well.
