dirty work at the crossroads rate
(Expression) Highwaymen (brigands) would wait at the crossroads, often not properly marked, and when the carriage or horsemen stopped to determine the correct path, would descend on the victims and rob them. Thus, "dirty work at the crossroads" has a real origin that has nothing to do with the "Y" shape.
