$6 checks

Somewhere, somehow I've misplaced 100 shares of my company's stock.  It is not in a brokerage account that I can find because all the known dividends, also meager amounts, are accounted for. So they are lost.  My company around 20 or so years ago used to give us stock certificates with their employee stock purchase plan and over time I submitted the certificates to brokerage accounts and all is good.  Well, I must have lost one.  Four times a year I get a dividend check for $6 and I cash it in for a cheep lunch.  Now I'm sure that there is information somewhere on the stub that I could find how to fix this but a free lunch every three months is kind of nice.  Ignorance is bliss in this case.
