If I tell you thank you and you say "no problem" then I am happy that a problem has been averted. Or you say "no worry" and I am really glad that nobody has to worry about me saying thank you. I still think "your welcome" or "my pleasure" sounds so much nicer. I guess it shows my old age yeah, but I like, literally miss the way people used to speak, okaaay?

If you really want to speak English like the "old days," talk like a pirate! There is a field of linguistic study called English Original Pronunciation, or OP for short. Linguists have been able to piece together what "Modern English" actually sounded like in Shakespere's time and what common English vocabulary was, using multiple techniques. It is not at all like what you would hear on "Downton Abbey." Even among the higher classes it was more guttural,, with a lot of idioms that are no longer in use today. To hear a linguist speak in OP, it sounds more like your stereotypical movie pirate.
There are productions of Shakespere being done in OP now, and it really imparts a different spin on those plays. While Shakespere had a lot of double entendres in his scripts that survive today, when the plays are done in OP, there are many more of them.

Perhaps my standards have slipped, I too prefer "You're Welcome", because any acknowledgement today from millennials seems to be an achievement.
I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.
