I will admit that it's pretty jarring to put a lighthearted/comical scene like that right after that emotionally intense argument they had.

I thought it was realistic. When you have an argument with someone and tell them to leave, sometimes that is just the heat of the moment... you don't actually expect or want them to leave. I think Bruce was genuinely surprised that Alfred actually followed through and left.
