In Panel 3, if the bags were in hand instead of on his "back", it looks like he could fit through the doorway.
In Panel 4, are his co-workers annoyed at his being so cheerful or at his being a centaur? If the former, too bad. If the latter, problems ahead for them.

@Old Crow: He's coming into office in a cheerful mood on a Monday. In some circles, that's a sign of mental illness...

This has been a while after his TF, so they know about him.

@DarkwingDork: Ah, I see. Most of my working life is in the military; so, what's a Monday was, for me, a valid question.

Somber though he seems, he should be thankful he still has a job...or does he?

I had a thought last night. Centaurs are going to be limited to local travel for quite a while. Flying somewhere? What airline could take them? Train? Not unless a cattle car. Bus? No way. Car or pickup truck? Maybe a pickup if you can ride in the truck bed with no protection. A centaur is limited to horse trailers and similar travel arrangements.
And bathrooms? Showers are going to be from a hose in the backyard unless bathtubs are heavily strengthened.
And so forth. A lot of ways to continue this comic to show the hassles of being "changed" and perhaps a lot of comic ideas as well.

@Old Crow: And you're right, like most new social changes in society, there's going to be a messy, uncomfortable era of transition. We're still in the time in this story.

@DarkwingDork: And it can be so much fun to look at, not to live, but look at.

@DarkwingDork: And yet, I saw a Manga that showed how cars MIGHT be constructed to accommodate us Centaurs; bi-folding doors, collapsible seats and alternate placement of seat belts. with the redesign of typical cars, it could work...
