Folks who receive salary in Switzerland shall be banned from complaining that Switzerland is expensive.
The money you are paid here are equivalent with the services you are billed for.

Many years ago, before moving here I was at the border asking for 1 day vignette. The lady said that I have only one option. Vignette for 1 year...Me: but I will be here for couple of hours.. she said:

if you don’t like it - go back!
And you likely paid less for one year than for a single journey to the Côte d’azur

Edited to add, ‘or a single journey through the Mt. Blanc tunnel’.
