The bungled spelling of a "disabeld" parking space has proved a web smash, but hit a red-faced worker with some unpaid overtime.
About 700 people have liked or shared a photo of the gaffe posted by a shop manager in Port Jack on the Manx Shops & Service Facebook page.
A Department of Infrastructure spokesman brushed aside the potty paint job as a "genuine mistake".
He said the worker who made the mistake "corrected it in his own time".
The manager of the Spar store in Port Jack, Daniel Spiby, said: "I spotted it when we were unloading a delivery but only had a chance to post the photos when I finished.
"The DoI came up last night at about half seven and corrected it."
