Explain this lawn mowing strategy to me

Because I see this quite a bit and have never understood it.

Step 1. Let your grass grow until it is a foot tall.

Step 2. Drop your mower down to the lowest setting.

Step 3. Struggle to mow your yard as your mower chokes on the foot-high grass and leaves huge clumps of cut grass in it's wake.

I guess some people just hate to mow, and put it off as long as they can. But to me it's a strategy that backfires because it is so much more work to shove your mower through foot-high grass than it would be if you just cut it once a week or so while it was still relatively short.
