acquiescence in custom
Essential of a custom binding upon the parties to a contract. A peaceable, unprotesting, and fairly uniform assent to a custom by those whose rights would naturally be affected by it, for such a length of time that it is safe to say that the custom must have entered into the minds of the parties at the time of their negotiations or transactions and therefore formed a part thereof, if nothing was said to the contrary. 21 Am J2d Cust § 8.
