why did whitewashing seem painful to tom

Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to the asked query:
In the novel ‘The Adventures of Tom Sawyer’, whitewashing seemed painful to Tom because on Saturday morning, Tom is forced to do this work to the fence outside the house as punishment for his behavior the night before. The day is beautiful, making the chore seem even more dreadful; in fact, Tom would rather do Jim's - the black servant's - chores than whitewash the fence.

white washing seemed painful to Tom as a whole saturaday of his freedom and fun would go waste on a boring and so called useless task to Tom
