a general term used to define, in a work environment, the act of your superior or owner of a company verbally abusing a person or team for a mistake or *perceived mistake*. Sometimes confused with the act of 'getting schadomized'.
The client fired us so I got called into the big office and was steined for my mistakes. or The boss yelled at me today and reminded me over and over how poor of an employee I am, I got steined like never before.
