Yeah, pay them.

I have had literally your same experience. What you really want is a 
brush hog, or a chain mower attached to a tractor that you see highway 
road crews using. Any normal mower just can't handle too-tall grass, 
especially when you start going over cut grass on top of uncut grass. 
You either need an open deck, a very powerful engine, and a non-blade 
'blade' (a chain), or you need time and patience and a big raking object.

I have two acres that is perpetually in the same condition you describe. 
I couldn't even find someone to cut it, and when I did, I was offended 
at the quotes.

After dealing with it, I suggest you pay them, or else make friends with 
some of the guys on the road crew.
