On June 1, 2003 Tony was offered a position as Regional Sales Director for Acme Company starting on July 1, 2003.

Acme Company sent Tony an employment contract for his signature. Tony crossed out "July" and wrote "August," signed and on June 3, 2003 he returned the contract to Acme Company's Human Resources Department. Tony also writes an e-mail to his future boss, Ann, Vice President of Sales, telling her that he looked forward "to working with her starting on August 1, not on July 1, 20003, per the contract." Acme says nothing. On July 30, 2003, Acme telephones Tony to tell him that his position has been given to another individual. Which of the following statements is most accurate?
