    The landlord is coming to the apartment at 3PM, please be home by then to show her ho

    The landlord is coming to the apartment at 3PM, please be home by then to show her how terrible the washing machine is.

    Should there be a comma or period? Is the sentence okay?

    Should be a full stop. :) There are two full sentences there. ;)

    But the second sentence is a continuation of the first sentence, no? It's one full thought. Right?

    A full stop is necessary.

    This is another way of fixing the sentence.
