That was an interesting thing to say, but that what it boils down to for you. Express your feelings to him and the importance of being on time the next time you need to be somewhere. Add that if he is not there at that time, you will be forced to leave without him.
If you are not willing to take that chance of losing a friend who does not take your feelings or whatever into consideration, then you will have to continue to be disregarded.
A. Tell him how it is and follow up, possibly losing a friend.
B. Keep getting walked on by someone you call a friend.
