    Fire him even if he is your wife's brother.
    Then, never ever hire someone you can't fire again.
    If you don't get rid of him, you'll be going back to fix it anyway, so you might as well do it yourself now.
    I don't know about you, but I feel better already.

      Go downtown and hire a Latino off the streets - tell him you'll train him and give him more money as he learns - you'll be better off.

        Yes, they usually are eager to work and work hard.

        He showed up for work saturday before the playoffs. I told him "don't make a career out of that wall." His rejoiner, "I may be slower than you but I do better work." I put my 500 watt lamp parallel to the wall and pointed out all the flaws (he was working in dim lite again). He quit on the spot - my wife wasn't exactly happy, but she accepted the situation.

        --Thanks all - I just need a pep talk

        Sheet, he was doing touch up with hot mud. I had to sand with a palm sander and prime it with BinZ

          I always do touch up with hot mud. Of course there is very little if any sanding needed.

          He probably was untrainable, but one way to try, would be to say, this is the way we do it, and do it right next to him. Turn on the light and do half of his wall.

          Finally when forced to work with less than adaquate people, I know just have them apply mud and I follow and trowel off. This way I don't have to carry a loaded pan and my arm appreciates it. Of course, better to have good help.
