You wouldn't be posting your question here if you were OK with the situation.

As long as you make it possible for that "new hire" to do what he's doing, his behavior won't improve. If you love him so much you're willing to cover for him and do his work, that's up to you. If his behavior is reflecting poorly on you at work, maybe you should ask yourself what, exactly, it is you owe this guy.

Personally, I would not put up with it. If you're responsible for employment decisions about the new hire, then make the obvious decision. If not, go to the boss, lay out the case and make it the boss's problem.

If you aren't willing to take action, then stop complaining.
