When did this become acceptable?

When did presumably educated people begin using "drug" as the past tense of drag and "snuck" as the past of sneak? What was wrong with "dragged" and "sneaked"? It drives me nuts.

I'm not wild about the use of "Thank you" as a reply to "Thank you" either. Shouldn't the reply be "You're welcome"? And exceptions for the rare instances when something like this might be acceptable: "No, thank you for letting me speak about this," or "Thank you, the pleasure is mine."
