Yep, that first pics tells all......and why those who are knowledgeable enough to use multi-testers should do it every time before plugging in. I probably own 10 or more multi-testers and never have one handy when I need it.
You can also make your own outlet testers, as I did, from info here (and keep it next to my power cord, don't ask why I can't do the same with a multi-tester)). This is a great site. with all kind of info. Click on the outlet testing tab on the left.
