Or for the more experienced...

Any multi meter can tell you if the outlet is wired correctly. Using bayonet leads measure the narrow (HOT) slot to the ground (round) hole. It should be 120vac. Do the same for the wide (Neutral)slot, it should read a few volts to zero.
If these results are not what you see the outlet is wired incorrectly and you need to seek professional help.
