Short and much more to-the-point form of "standard". Mostly used among highly sophisticated individuals to define and applaud acts of normality. "Standy" can be used as both a noun and an adjective. A common phrase that stems from this term is 'Standy the Boy.'
This idiom does a nice job of simplifying the following: 'Wow, I just acknowledged how typical you are being at this moment and because of this, I will give you my approval and praise!'
Bob: "Hey Jeremy, did the Leafs win today?"
Jeremy: "They almost came back in the 3rd"
Alex: "I just got 100% on my chemistry midterm!"
Tyler: "Standy the boy!"
Hans: "Shit I just found out my midterm is in 3 hours"
Gordon: "Whoa, are you gonna study for it?"
Hans: "Nope gonna pull a standy"
Used to describe a bar that is so full of people that you are forced to stand and find yourself holding your drink closer and closer to your chest to avoid spilling it every time someone bumps into you.
The Standy Test can be performed to determine a bar's level of standiness. Simply rock from side to side and if your shoulder bumps a person, the bar is indeed standy. If you are squished up to the people next to you like a mosh pit, the bar is very standy and you should probably leave.
Levels of Standy
1. Not standy - you are easily able to find a seat
2. Potentially standy - the bar is starting to fill up
3. Standy - there are no more seats left and you need to stake a claim on a chair as soon as someone abandons it
4. Very standy - You can barely make your way through the crowd to order a drink
Dude 1: "I'm at the bar, are you coming soon?"
Dude 2: "is it busy?"
Dude 1: "it's a little standy, but I got us a couple of seats at a table"
