I don't want to be a pest. I assume the person has a good reason to delay. I don't send important, rush things by text.
No one is going to thank you for demanding an explanation for a delay in responding to a text. I would want to say to you "You don't like how I respond, don't text me. I don't need your text, and I don't need you to make another demand on me, especially one that seems so self-centered. Leave me alone."
I would aim for trying to make the person glad he gets my text, so he is happy to respond.0
