Maybe his attitude was far more confrontational than you wrote but just him saying "this is no time for a break" is reasonable. Him asking to see marks on clay is reasonable and entirely within the rules. Him not being in ready position when you wanted to serve is reasonable.

There are a ton of things that he could have done that I think would make it perfectly legitimate for you to walk off- but you didn't mention those in this story.
If you think his behaviour is "reasonable", I'm glad we'll never play.
