: I never heard "sleeping in" for sleeping late until I moved from the rural area of West Virginia to the "big city." Maybe that's because country people never get to "sleep in."

I grew up in the rural south and only heard it on TV (along with "eat in" for eating at home), we always used "sleep late". Even now, in the urban midwest, I seldom hear "sleep in".
