Self Cleaning Oven

Why would anyone use the self clean option on the oven? Has anyone ever used it without feeling like they were about to croak? Every window, fan and door is open and still suffering from smoke inhalation.
P.S. Whatever you do, do NOT put your grill grates in the oven while using the self clean option. The manufacturer says you can, but only do this if you are trying to commit suicide.
