How to order a taxi in an australian pub:

1) find the public phone
2) the taxi company number will be on there somewhere
3) dial it (good luck)
4) yell "Maaaaaaaaaaaaate" down the phone
5) go outside (again, good luck) and wait

the taxi will be there in five minutes.

this works in towns with six pubs or less.
