How much should a medical receptionist that also takes Vidal signs, height, weight, and operates heat and stim, be getting paid?

Sounds like they are using you as a med tech or assistant without paying you like one. Average starting is 20,000$ and experienced is 57,000$

I'm no professional at all... I'm only fifteen but my guess is just as much as a nurse is paid. =]

Im a medical assistant (CMA) and depending on where your working (state, county) the pay is different. As a CMA I'm trained to work as a receptionist, the clinical part, lab and billing and coding. Depending on how much of one thing I do (lab for an example) I get paid more. While as a receptionist I get paid less, way less. I would ask for a pay deferential. Your doing more than just what a receptionist does you should get paid for other "talents" that you have. Don't sell yourself short

Alright then, all is forgiven. The craziest words cone out of IPhone spellcheck. I texted my sister that I was going to zumba, my phone changed it to Zimbabwe! She was slightly confused.

Not to mention when you try to type things like "You're", it turns out to be "You!43" and almost every word you misspell (for instance: noe; instead of "now") it just capitalizes the first letter!! :P

And it changes "Dayness" to "Fatness". Someone was texting their girlfriend one time and said "How is your bad dayness?" and sent it, later realizing that it corrected "dayness" to "fatness" and his girlfriend was MAD. XD "How is your bad fatness?"!
