2 weeks later I get a text from him saying what's up. I joked with him that if he was going for the pirze of longest wait time he won it. To which he responded 2 weeks isn't a long time except for young children...
At this point simply for curiousity sake (and maybe because he was seeing someone which explains the wait) he said what about a first date and I told him I could do X day this week or something next week.
He said he's out on business until the middle of the month can we set a date for then? To which I replied for him just to touch base when he gets back. WTF?
I understand being busy with work but my basic protocol is no contact a week after I gave you my number equals not enough interest, move on. Why even contact me if you know you are leaving again? Am I wrong?

I'd lose his number and not think twice about reading anything he texts you.
First of all, he's a rude prick, and he's totally seeing someone else. If he has time to text you and ask you out, I'm sure he's not so busy he can't muster enough time for a date.
Secondly, two weeks is an eternity when you're first getting to know someone, and anyone expecting me to wait that long would simply give me the insinuation they're having fun pursuing someone else, and they decided to text me in between rounds with that person or because they've moved on.
He's contacting you because you're a fall back option, as anyone in their right mind, who is interested in someone, doesn't wait freaking two weeks only to send an impersonal text, followed up with a defensive answer when you were making light of it and not complaining.
