    slept in again

    I was told that "sleep in" is used for when you don't any schedule, while "oversleep" ,, when you have an appoinment and miss it.
    But are the two interchangeable? Is the underlined okay or does it have to be replaced with "overslept"?

    A : Listen...I ...uh...
    B: Don't tell me you slept in again
    A: My alarm clock didn't go off..And i was so tired.
    B : I don't want your excuses anymore.
