Husband telling wife “Let’s go to the Qazi and get a talaaq”

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: One day me and my husband were quarreling. I said that, “you have ruined my life”. Hearing that, he became angry and told me two or three times, “ok then, let’s go to the Qazi and get a talaq”. He did not have any intention to give me talaq or he did not say “talaq talaq talaq or I am giving you divorce”. He just told me that to make me feel bad. In this case did the talaq take place?
