Because they don't need to make the difference, it's not relevant if it is relevant nobody would confuse: with eu trabalhava... we have the idea that things are open to new experiences, and with eu trabalhei we sum up the whole experience.

 

If we really need to be told how to use our language in minute details why don't grammar books bring things like: O amigo de João se feriu, where se does not make any reference to João but to O amigo de João? Well if we are not told these thing in grammar compendia that means that our intuition does make a good deal when we are going to interpret something.
