The Begging Boy is a ghost who masks itself as a human boy and asks unwitting victims for their food. If they refuse or he doesn't like the food, he kills them.
As Janine Melnitz left Jitters with a big cookie and coffee mug, the Begging Boy asked her for a piece of the cookie. She decided she didn't need the calories and gave him the whole cookie. The boy thanked her and revealed his true form then told her she could live. Janine was annoyed she couldn't get coffee without something weird happening.
