What is the meaning of…

1. Did they give you a ticket stub when you checked your coat?
2. I took my winter boots to that little repair shop near my house, but I lost the stub to claim them. Do you think the owner will give me back my boots without it?
3. Is the ticket stub for our dry cleaning in your coat pocket? I would like to pick up my suit today.
