OK, just checking. When I bought my house, every outlet in it was wired incorrectly. The outlets were two prong unpolarized outlets. That's what I get for being the second owner of a 40 year old house.

FYI, A surge protector does not provide GFCI protection unless specifically stated. A surge protector protect against excessive current and is meant to protect devices and a GFCI is meant to protect people. You probably know this, but your comment implied otherwise.

Many moons I tried to summarize the differences in a different post. It's accurate enough for this discussion.
