    Not necessarily. I've been told things by Tower like "exit when able, stay with me. Taxi to the ramp via Alpha to Alpha 3."

    Yup. Listen and know what’s going on.

    Tower can say what they want provided traffic both in the air and on the ground allow it. Even when I'm busy in local I still tell someone to contact ground usually in the same transmission as "exit the runway at (insert taxiway here)" People who switch on their own aren't doing the tower any favors. It isn't a big deal, just until the proper verbiage is changed, I'll keep waiting for the tower to tell me to taxi to park or contact ground.
