Started school way back and was printing left handed. After a series of pointer blows to my left hand I followed orders from masochist to use my right hand. Must have ruined my life forever. :-) Used either hand working and threw right batted both and kicked a football (badly) with right foot. Used to be able to throw a baseball left handed well enough to play first base when right elbow was injured.
In all the times I've sat in line waiting for my turn at the drive-up ATM over the years, I don't ever recall seeing anyone go through the contortions you described. I have on occasion seen someone open their door rather than reach through the window, but they still used their left hand to operate the machine. I just assumed they had a problem with their window that prevented opening it. Now, I have seen someone using the Braille symbols on a drive-up ATM... Fortunately, she was the passenger in the back seat of a taxi.
Me neither! LOL Unless the rare occasion when they didn't park close enough and can't REACH the buttons they open the door to lean forward.
Found out when serving in the army that I was more left-handed than Right. I shoot with my left eye, catch better with my left, can't throw for beans with either hand. Being a tad ambidexterous made teaching people how to run machines interesting to say the least. One gal (lefty) had little problem running a coil-winding machine, another gal (could lose her left arm and it would help) couldn't follow my method at all. After breaking 10 coils of #44 magnet wire, I asked her if her left hand was broke. Turns out, she was a real right-handed person. I had to find another engineer to teach her on my machine.
At work, my desk is set-up for a left handed person. You should see the right handed people try to use my computer - the show is a lot of fun for me.
I love that I eat w/ my left hand and cut my food w/ my right so I never have to set down my fork. I do most things left handed but am quite capable of doing things right handed. Funny thing is I can biopsy tissue just fine w/ my right hand but I can't write worth a darn w/ my right hand. I do make my righty DH deal w/ the computer mouse on the left side.
I write right, shoot shot gun left, hand gun right, play pool both, eat both, open doors both.

I can bowl right (160 avg) or left handed (138 avg)
I can bat a baseball right (power) or left handed (clutch)
I can shoot or dribble a basketball right or left handed
I can only shoot a pistol strictly right handed,
I can only shoot a rifle or shotgun strictly left handed...
I can only overhand throw strictly right handed,
I can only throw a frisbee accurate and straight strictly left handed...
Generally I place spoon and fork left handed, knife right handed - but can adapt either right or left handed
I can only write, shoot billiards strictly right handed
I can only spin and balance a basketball or beachball, and hold a guitar strictly left handed
However I am strictly a left footed kicker, that would include left foot in front when riding a skateboard or surfboard.
