Say It Right: “Is the Tip Included?”

What’s this price? Wait, is the tip included? Is the TAX INCLUDED? Why are there so many tipping customs?? So confusing!

French: Est-ce que le service est compris?
Spanish: ¿Incluye la propina?
Arabic: هَل البَقشيش مَحْسوب؟
Mandarin: 这里面包括小费吗 [Pinyin: Zhè lǐmiàn bāokuò xiǎofèi ma?]
English: Do you take American Express?
