The key word is "should"... If you get some ya-hoo who decides they
can save a few $$$ and wire up an outlet... well... let's just say
that the first homeowner's tool I bought was an outlet tester, and I
found two outlets that had hot and neutral reversed...
I worked at a place where the owner plugged a serial cable in between
his PC and his Mac, and he roached the Mac serial port because of the
same problem. He had all the outlets tested and fixed, but he also
made a proclaimation - no computers were to be connected via serial
cables unless they pulled their power from the same wall outlet. A
bit inflexible, but guaranteed not to have a mismatch.
