Muriel, you copied a link to the Cambridge dictionary for each word in the sentence Smile

No I didn't know about the meaning you related on.

Regarding the noun "handle", there're several meanings:
- a part of an item we can seeze to manipulate something
- similar meaning in a figurative way when we can manipulate someone
- nobility title - to have a handle to one's name
- also the ID on CB radio.

Many people "stretch the truth" when they're looking for a job. Admin's not sure if that's the best idea! What do you think?
