Sanderson is waiting for Paul to began the meeting, so Paul arrived & Sanderson welcoming him.

Sanderson: There he is. Paul, come in.

Paul: Sorry. There were unexpected developments. I had to go home and start the day again.

Sanderson: Tell me about it. Some days are two sizes too small.

I didn't understand What Sanderson said to Paul about Days?

    Think of clothing that's two sizes too small. You couldn't fit yourself into it. A day two sizes too small is a metaphor. It would be a day in which you had too many things you had to do to fit it in one day.

    I dont think that this is a common expression. I've never heard it or seen it, so perhaps Sanderson was being original. But I like it very much.

What it means is that some times a day/24 hours seems too small/less for all the tasks we require to complete on that day.
