Expedient, and probably the best you can do without rewiring some one else's electrical system. But not necessarily the safest thing you could have done, if any of your
electrical systems develop a fault while you're plugged in.
I'd also suggest you buy another adaptor, and don't
remove the ground prong, for the next time you have a chance to plug into a properly wired outlet.
