the use of "than" at the end of a sentence

by gabe

I understand that it is not correct with classic grammar to end a sentence with a preposition, but given commonly used speech, which is the correct word to use in this circumstance?

Person one "I will visit you at work on Monday." person two "I only work on Wednesday."
Person one "Wednesday then."

Because of the implied ultimatum of Wednesday being the only option available, would then be the correct word to use?
