Mindy Kaling hates birthday parties during work.

Or, at least, she thinks they could be more efficient.

During her visit to Conan Monday night, Kaling told Conan O'Brien that her "strict" managerial habits have caused some consternation among her staff.

"Everyone was like, 'You're a dictator! Go back to North Korea! We wanna have mirth at our workplace!' " She added: "My big thing is, you have to sing 'Happy Birthday' faster."



Kaling continued her tongue-in-cheek comments by saying she doesn't buy her writers birthday presents because she's already given them the ultimate gift: Their job.

Kaling's The Mindy Project has been renewed for a third season on Fox, and she'll be appearing in the animated feature Inside Out next year.
