Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a husband and wife are having normal discussion and wife tells husband to let her go to kitchen to do some work and husband says okay, I leave you two times (mein apko chor deta hun) but without any intention of divorce, just in routine language. Then could it count as a divorce?

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
