    The question is, if I make a mess, why is it my job to clear it up?  This is a moral question, involving “should” and “ought”.

    I think the answer lies within cooperation: in this situation, each person has a role, and they are responsible to their partners to fulfill their role and do their job.  If I make a mess then I am failing in my role: I have not done a good job, and I am responsible to my partners to make things right.
