Me too. The shower one is a lot more accurate. Though I could see my mom totally doing this at the ATM.

i always do this like a man, apaprently. in fact, my guy REFUSES to use the drive through at all and tells me that "men go inside, women are lazy and drive through." I admit, when I have the baby, I use the drive through, but i'm still like the man in your post.
