We can't have the next shift left with a mess.
For one, it's just not right, and two, it can cause a breakdown in customer service as the next shift struggles and stresses to catch up on work you didn't do. So work all during shift towards leaving the place in the following condition. Then, if your shift was busy right to the end, stay and get the work done before you leave! Finally, Server and Cook should work together - it's not all "yours and mine" - it's "ours", to make sure everything is done back and front of house and then clock out and leave together.
