Means you're too late. Like if a guy likes you and then another one asks you out before him, you say to the first guy, "sorry, day late and a dollar short." So basically, you waited and screwed yourself over.
Guy: Hey, will you go out with me?
Girl: Sorry, day late and a dollar short... Guy 2 just asked me out yesterday.
