Oktokolo3070301dGo as far away from that task as possible - both physically and mentally.
When you managed to stop thinking about it and had some fun doing non-related things (gaming, sports,... whatever you like most), go back to that task the next day and complete it.

VaderNT1856300d@100110111 I love how you worded it like the comment above yours. 😂
Ok, I'll explain to our boss that mr. senior and I aren't compatible. Because we aren't - he's unable or unwilling to discuss the "what" and then delegate the "how", which is exactly how I function. Problem is, we're a small company. Moving to a different project or starting a new one isn't easy.
1001101112823300d@VaderNT oooh, yeah small teams are a beast of their own kind. In those situations it's especially paramount to have a good atmosphere within the team. Not everyone has to be a 100% compatible, and since we are humans, it's unrealistic to expect that. But the way I see it, and the advice I can give you, is that you have to assess how much you like working at that company compared to options you may have (and options you have - since in our profession, we are wanted) - that defines the lengths you should be prepared to go to ensure things get better where you at.
Also, you definitely should have that conversation with your manager, but more importantly, what I think you should do is to tell them that a 3way conversation between your boss, Mr. Sr. and yourself should take place where you try and solve this issue on how you could work together from here on out, or try to come up with a way to shuffle the company's dev resources so that it benefits everybody. If it turns out other devs have problems working with the said senior dev, too, then he may be a liability to the company and should be rid of... I never wish that for anybody, but maybe an honest conversation and assessment of how the dev HR work together could highlight what the real issues are and possibly pave way to solving them.
