What does an Argentine mean when he says he 's a handle ? Is it good or bad? Or does it depend on the case? In a country where leftover handles, a simple common noun became an adjective describing various things. But let's start from the beginning: where does the current use come from?
In its most literal sense, a handle is the one that opens (doors, windows) and sometimes the one that allows something to work (on certain tools, for example). The term also has a figurative meaning that follows from the literal. Says the SAR :
If we look at our lunfardo , in tangos, the handle is an important person , who orders, dispositions or decides in a situation, who has influence or power. Similar to what the SAR says. But handle is also something else. It's that stimulus, that impulse, that leads us to do something . And that sometimes causes us anxiety.
Intense, emotional, passionate, exaggerated. Does it sound to you? Bring doors — then — that, in this country, there are plenty of handles.
