Everything I've ever heard or read has stated that a clock can be called on someone after they've had a REASONABLE amount of time to act on their hand. In the case of an all in decision though, a clock is rarely enforced unless the time becomes extremely excessive.
Obviously the floorman and the dealer were complete and udder morons if the OP's description is accurate.
Now, having said that, if everyone is making 95% of their decisions in 5-10 seconds and you are taking 30 seconds every time, then in comparison to the rest of the table, your time to act is extremely excessive. The the generally accepted policy is to allow a reasonable amount of time to act.
