The only benefit you have with the 50 over the kit lens is that at 50mm, the prime lens (non zoom one) has a larger opening, so you do not need as much light to take a picture. That's it. You got snookered by the best buy rep if he said it was wide angle. Wide angle would be from 10MM to 16MM.
Yah I had a feeling that was happening when I noticed it was only $129.00 and talking to everyone on here it should be 5x more than what I paid.
