Exhibiting or characteristic of the sort of exaggeration or outright lying that has become commonplace in recommending someone for a position.
Boss 1: Remember Jason, that former employee of yours whom I hired based on your glowing recommendation?
Boss 2 (nervously): Hmm, I have a faint recollection...
Boss 1: I'll bet you do! You told me he was an excellent worker--never left his seat for a moment!
Boss 2: Mmm. Yes, I may have said something of the sort...
Boss 1: But you didn't tell me that his seat was located in the coffee room!
Boss 2: I must admit to being slightly recommendacious.
