45. Johnny and Sally had numerous outputs contracts over the span of ten years, regarding delivery of rocks. Johnny delivered tons of rocks, requiring him to schedule his largest trucks in advance of delivery. The custom of the rock industry, was that rocks were to be delivered on the first day of each month. However, Johnny had always delivered the rocks on the tenth day of each month. In the current contract situation between Johnny and Sally, which began the month before, there was nothing stating the time for delivery, and Johnny delivered the rocks on the tenth day of June, even though Sally indicated on the sixth day of June, that she wanted the rocks delivered on the seventh day of June. Which of the following statements is most true?
A. The usage of trade within the rock industry would rule, and Johnny was wrong to deliver the rocks after the first of the month. B. The course of performance of the current contract would rule, and Johnny should have delivered the rocks on the seventh day of the month. C. The course of prior dealings between Johnny and Sally would rule, and Johnny would be able to deliver the current delivery on the tenth day of the month. D. Sally's indication that she wanted the rocks delivered on the seventh day of the month, indicates a valid modification, especially since Uniform Commercial Code contracts do not require new consideration for a modification.
