Everyone does not include the OP. No disrespect to the OP, but if he couldn't recognize that 50mm isn't a wide angle, he likely won't take advantage of it as a portrait lens (with the larger aperture) any time soon while his kit lens will do just fine.

Return the lens for a refund if possible, and whenever you become ready to add a fixed-length lens, for portraiture or whatever your specific needs, then you'll be in a better position to make that purchasing decision at that time. The 50mm 1.8 is crap anyways!
