Do ESTA days count down even if you're not in the country?

Hey guys! I flew to the US from Mexico as an Irish citizen on an ESTA and stayed for 2 months. I left back to Cancun after those 2 months and stayed for 3 weeks.

I just flew back to the US now and they told me I only have a week left on my ESTA. Which means they were counting the days I was outside the country. I tried to clarify this with them but it was hard and I think they were a bit confused. Am I wrong? Does an ESTA count down even if you have left? (So like if I came to the USA for a week and left my 90 days would still count down?)
