    Some day in the recent past, during which something occurred. It is used when we are talking about something that happened recently, but perhaps forget the day.
    It is usually some day before yesterday, but not too far in the past.
    "I saw your brother the other day." = I saw your brother a few days back.

    It works just like 'yesterday' but is talking about a certain day in the recent past, probably 2-10 days ago.

     

    It means, I regret what happened the other day, or I am sorry about what I did the other day.
