Have u ever ended contact with a friend because they were over an hour+ late to every planned hangout & every hangout was a chore?

Have you tried telling the person to meet you an hour earlier? However, you use the word "chore," and that's not good. Maybe it's time to let the friend go.

I wouldn't need to end all contact with the person, just stop making any plans in which timeliness was important. Leslie is late everywhere always. So I tell her "Come over 3 pm or a little later and we'll go from my place" and I keep busy with constructive activities that let me break off and leave home on 20 minutes notice. She's never had a problem with "Hi, have a seat and look at a magazine for 20 minutes and we'll go."
Around 5:30 I send her a message: "If you're not here by 6, we'll have to do this some other time." And if she never shows, then so it goes. I haven't been sitting around waiting. During hours between 3 and 6 pm I've done an hour of light housework, ironed fancy dress for Saturday night, done leather conditioning on all my boots, had a nice phone gab with my mom, made itineraries and store lists for errand day, whatever. I didn't let Leslie waste my time.
If I'm looking for a "meet me at Bistro on the Beach at 6" type outing, then Leslie isn't the person to ask, you know?
