Mindy Kaling Rants About Birthdays on Conan

Apr 15, 2014

Mindy Kaling stopped by Conan Monday night to express the deep displeasure she has when coworkers celebrate birthdays at work.

The Mindy Project star discussed everything from the tempo at which her coworkers sing "Happy Birthday" to why she doesn't give her writers birthday presents.

"Everyone was like, 'You're a dictator! Go back to North Korea! We wanna have mirth at our workplace!'" Kaling said.

The only question is: what happens when it's her birthday?
